Stories from our community - Dennis Grennell
As a community, have all demonstrated incredible resilience and strength through the recent COVID-19 restrictions. We asked our community to share their stories of the recent level 4 lock-down. Here, Dennis Grennell from Queenstown shares his story
What was the best thing about being in isolation?
I can’t think of a best thing about being isolation.
What was the hardest thing about being in isolation?
The limitation and lack of freedom to do everyday activities
Did you learn a new skill during this time, or learn something about yourself or a loved one that you didn’t know? Tell us about it.
I learnt about my son in laws mother who has passed. She was a young woman in Australia who found a black snake in her house. She put a pillow on the snake and sat on it waiting for someone to come. When no-one did she cut off its head with an axe!
Was there an act of kindness that you experienced during the lockdown that you would like to share.
I was struggling to talk about my feelings at my daughters house. She and her husband listened to me without pressure and I was able to express myself.
What is the first thing you are going to do when the restrictions are lifted?
Go to Odelay Café and to the gym.
