'THROUGH THE KEYHOLE'…a weekly blog from Richard Morris
All things property, house prices and 'interestingness' from Newton Fallowell Managing Director.
Our salute to the superheroes in Loughborough, East Leake and Charnwood
If this past month has taught us anything, it may well be this.
And that is never to take anything for granted.
Our health, and that of our loved ones.
Our freedom, and just how precious it is.
And, the superheroes we are blessed with and what they do for us.
There are genuine Supermen and Wonder Women who walk among us in Loughborough, East Leake and Charnwood and who we rely on more than we ever realised.
They are giants protecting those of us who seek refuge in the reassurance and protection of their shadows.
They are the NHS, the delivery drivers, the carers, the cleaners, the shop staff, the teachers, the bin men and women, the postal workers and the emergency services.
They are our family, friends and neighbours, but often, they are total strangers.
And that is why what they are doing for us is so remarkable.
They are the best versions of us.
Before this, many of them were invisible to society. Many of them were undervalued until it became glaringly evident exactly how precious they really are.
At Newton Fallowell we’re just estate agents, but the recent life-changing lessons taught to us by these superheroes have brought home what it really means to be of service.
Like many of you on Thursday 9th April at 8pm, we joined family, friends, neighbours and strangers acrossLoughborough, East Leake and Charnwood on our doorsteps and came together as one, to applaud and salute those superheroes on who our lives depend.
We thank them all.
Persistently banging on the door some 20 years ago with huge enthusiasm and a cheeky smile,
Richard landed the job of tea boy and trainee for then local independent Hartleys Estate Agents in Loughborough.
Armed with an exhaustive collection of industry knowledge later and Richard has ended up in the driving seat of his own
family run company Newton Fallowell, established in 2015 with offices in Loughborough, East Leake, Kegworth and Shepshed.
