Please be a good neighbour during the freeze

A couple of times in the winters after we arrived in Kintore, some kind soul took a snowplough up the road to our house. Despite our best efforts, we never could find out who it was who did it, so we could thank them. But it was typical of the kind-hearted community we live in. So, during the current freeze, let’s continue our support for others.
