After the Riots: Seeing the Good Around

Despite all the horrific events this week in Ealing one thing is for sure, the community has rallied together and things are slowly coming back to normal. Glass is being replaced, shops that were looted are being restocked, restaurants are re-opening and a real sense of concern for those who were affected can be felt. People want to help and support the local businesses that were hit and bring things back to normal as quickly as possible.

Last Tuesday, the morning after the riots, I posted pictures of Fara Kids, a children's charity shop and Baby e, a designer baby shop who were casualties of the meaningless thuggery. Today I am posting follow up pictures of these shops who both have signs in their windows acknowledging the support they have received from the community.

If there is one positive that can be taken from the horrific events of the last week, it is that people care, there are a lot of good people out there and communities really do rally together when times get tough. For me, seeing how the people of Ealing have responded helps to restore some faith in the society we live in and the world we are bringing our children up in.

Thank you for your comment - it is great to see the place getting back to normal. I'm just glad the rioting seems to be over now - let's hope it stays that way!

Ahh, how lovely that everyone is coming together! We were lucky that up here there wasnt really any trouble, except the usual local thugs who would cause a fight in an empty room! Hoping the clean up doesnt take too long:)
