Community spirit has been apparent by the bucketful during the pandemic, with families, friends and neighbours coming together more than ever despite being kept apart through lockdown and social distancing measures.

And one pair of super siblings have been playing their part brilliantly, with Jonah and Jorja Nicholls being named our People of the Week.

Nine-year-old Jonah and his little sister Jorja, six, have been tidying up their corner of the world, whizzing around Frizington with their litter pickers to keep the village pretty during the pandemic.

The dynamic duo have even received medals from the Frizington Community Group for their work, being thanked by everyone for their hard work.

And the person behind Jonah and Jorja's nomination couldn't make their spotlight any brighter, listing everything that makes them great, adding: "It's amazing what these kids are doing to help our community."

But they didn't do it do it for the praise, as the St Joseph’s School pupils simply wanted to help the community during a difficult time, and mum Suzanne is so proud of her children, and the “wonderful” things they’ve been up to.

“Obviously me and their dad [Ryan] are so proud that they wanted to do something to help and give back to the community,” she said.

"They love doing it – they've even started [litter picking] at my mum's house, broadening their horizons!"

Jonah has various conditions, and Suzanne is thrilled to see the difference helping the village has made in him, giving him plenty to focus on and even helping get the whole family out and exercising together.

And his and Jorja's smiles are the cherry on top.

Suzanne said: "They were over the moon to get their medals – they're so proud of themselves, and they couldn't wait to show their teachers.

"There's not a lot they can do during this uncertain time, so it's been really lovely to see them being busy and wanting to help."

She added: "We've created a memory box to remember this strange time, so this will definitely be something for them to remember, and they'll always know they've done something this wonderful."
