A number of people are asking for the clapping to be moved to every two weeks, before it starts to become a Thursday night chore.
Thursday can be a busy day in our new world, with Netflix, chocolate, masturbation and hand washing all to be fitted in.
Local clapper, Peter Thape is a big fan of the NHS, but likes to catch up on Casualty and Holby City around 8 on Thursdays.
‘Can’t we just thank them by email instead,’ said Thape.
‘I don’t need to see the neighbours in their silly masks, thank you,’ he added.
