'Enjoy your day - buy a coffee': Neighbour leaves heartwarming message and a £5 note on ambulance blocking their driveway (5 Pics)

AN ambulance crew who blocked a driveway after responding to a 999 call returned to find a heartwarming message on the windscreen – along with a £5 note.
Paramedic Julie Wade and Emergency Care Assistant Catherine Whitehouse were attending a trauma call in Spalding, Lincs, and had to park on someone’s drive.

They were taking the patient back to their vehicle when they stumbled across the note which urged them to “buy a coffee” and “enjoy their day”.
The note read: “You blocked my drive but it doesn’t matter because I wasn’t going out anyway. Enjoy your day – buy a coffee.”
East Midlands Ambulance Service said the crew didn’t manage to buy the drink because they were too busy but added they were planning on purchasing one during their night shift.
They also thanked the “kind person” who left the note and added the staff “appreciated” their heartfelt message.

A spokesman said: “Lincolnshire Paramedic Julie Wade and Emergency Care Assistant Catherine Whitehouse were attending a patient in Pinchbeck, near Spalding yesterday when they had a #Bluelighthappy moment.
“The crew were attending a trauma call, when they left to take the patient to the ambulance they were greeted with this #EMAZING note.
“Unfortunately, the crew never managed to get their coffee due to being too busy, however they are looking forward to getting one on their night shift tonight.
“Thank you to the kind person who left this note, we appreciate it.”

It comes after a number of other notes were left on ambulances after crews blocked their driveway while responding to emergency calls.
An angry resident in Leicester left a note which said: “You blocked my driveway. I waited 45 minutes for you to move.
“Please have some consideration where you park the ambulance! This is not the first time.”
Not all notes left on ambulances are so pleasant - such as this rude one left in Leicestershire

Lee Brentall, paramedic and ambulance operations manager for Leicester, said it was “disappointing” to see the “rude” note which was left on the windscreen.
However, not all of the notes have been left by disgruntled locals.
A heart-warming message and £10 was left on a windscreen in Camberley, Surrey, which thanked the staff and described them as heroes.

It read: “Just wanted to say a massive thank you for being out at all hours of the day and night and being true heroes.
“I can't begin to imagine how hard your job must be so have some breakfast on me! Once again, thank you so much!"
A resident in Faversham, Kent, also left a £10 note on an ambulance windscreen and wrote: “You're blocking our drive. No worries, buy a coffee when you can."
