Wanting to cater for every household in the village, Garry and Michelle prepared 310 Easter eggs that were wrapped and placed on the doorstep of each home.

"We delivered them on Saturday, dropping them on the doorstep so we had no contact with anyone," said Garry. "We wore gloves when bagging the eggs and during delivery."

Originally from Great Barr, Garry added how important he believes community spirit is during lockdown, and how Woodseaves residents had been pulling together.

"Community spirit is massively important at the moment, and gestures like this can help bring communities together," he said. "Everyone in the village seems to be supporting each other."

Having been overwhelmed with messages of thanks, Garry looks forward to a village celebration when lockdown is over.

"It'll be time for a great, big party," he added.
