Hussey’s and Best One – Wapping Heroes

By on November 30, 2013 in News

With all the nonsense that happens in the world it’s heartening to hear of people who help those in need.

The Cheekie Chappies of Best One

So it is with great pleasure to announce that the staff of Hussey’s and Best One in Wapping Lane are Wapping Heroes.

Best One - best smiles too!Wapping Heroes.

Best One – best smiles too! Wapping Heroes.

One of our elderly neighbours on the Green Bank Estate (aka ‘The Heart of Wapping’ according to an estate agent) was discharged from hospital during the week after a fall. And she wasn’t too well before the fall to be honest.

Trouble is now she is back home she can’t get to the shops.

Hussey's Wapping Lane. Quality butchers and Wapping Heroes!

So the shops are coming to her!

Not uncommon in Wapping

Yes, staff from Best One and Hussey’s in Wapping Lane are bringing her shopping and food.

Which is fantastic.

Although not uncommon in this part of London.

Other neighbours (you know who you are but I won’t name you because you don’t like a fuss) are also keeping on eye out.

You may be asking – as we did – as to why there seems to be no social support for her. Especially just after being discharged from hospital. So we have made a call to see what the situation is and will report back.

And the best way to repay the staff of Hussey’s and Best One is to go and shop there.
