Staff at the village’s Tesco store filmed themselves strutting their stuff in a bid to spread some positivity online and make shoppers aware of its social distancing measures.

Around 90 employees, including store manager Murray Leslie, were involved in the Let’s Work Together video, recorded via the TikTok social networking service.

Fresh food team manager Anne Anderson, who put the footage together, said: “I wanted to make a video to boost morale in store with colleagues as it has been a very hard few weeks for everyone, customers included.

Tesco Redding staff shot a Let's Work Together video to spread a positivity and safety message during lockdown.

“After making one at Christmas, the difference it makes is tremendous.

“We also wanted to include the measures Tesco had put in place in store to ensure customer and colleague safety.

“The video took just over a week to put together because it’s a wee bit harder with the social distancing.

“We’ve had a great reaction. It’s been on YouTube for just over 24 hours and we’ve had over 3000 views.”

Anne also gave a special mention to her colleague Kimberley Cluckie who has been explaining the social distancing guidelines to shoppers as they enter the supermarket.

She continued: “Kimberley has been really, really good and customers now understand the rules more.

“We were hoping the video would help them with the one-way system and the one person per household at a time rule.

“We want everybody to keep safe and follow the guidelines because the sooner we do that, the sooner we will be out of lockdown and back to normal, hopefully.”
