Video report by ITV News Anglia's Natalie Gray
Before lockdown people living in Beatrice Road in Norwich would have just shouted hello or waved from a distance. They didn't know each other's names.
Now many of them are friends.
These people who previously shared only a postcode have joined together for pavement socials and distanced drinks. They even have a Whatsapp group to check on and support each other.
They have done so much baking for each other that the residents are now hoping to publish a cook book with profits going to good causes in their neighbourhood.
Residents have shared favourite recipes and added a little bit about themselves - a small bit of social history in these extraordinary times and a wonderful upside to lockdown.
