“It was really nice, at about 7.45pm people were starting to gather around the grounds, and then about 19:55 lots of ambulances, police and fire engines turned up and parked all around the roads inside the grounds,” said Andrew Perkins, contracts manager at Highway Assurance.
“Then just before 8pm all of the staff came out and the clap commenced for around five minutes, really lovely.”
