“You can not capture the spirit of Reservoir Village with just one picture. Its the experience, its the same street you’ve frequented and loved since you were a kid, its about supporting the local families and business’ as well as the smells from the bakeries that draw you in or the variety of food from the various cafes most importantly its about the culture seeing the same familiar faces and justsaying a friendly hello upon passing by. The joy from buying a donut from sargents after school or going to get a new jumper from sports power just to enjoy a friendly chat from the people youve come to know over the past 25 years! My nan visited Reservoir Village nearly everyday i even have the same locals from the shops she frequent tell me memories of her, its more than just a village.#reservoirsome”
