The original Clap for Carers took place on Thursday evenings at 8pm for around 10 weeks during the first lockdown.
There are plans to resume the weekly event, but this time around it will be called Clap for Heroes.
Annemarie Plas, who came up with the weekly ritual, has tweeted that the tradition would be returning and she said: “We are bringing back the 8pm applause, in our 3rd lockdown.
“I hope it can lift the spirit, of all of us. Carers teacher, homeschooling parents, those who shield and ALL who is pushing through this difficult time! Please join & share! #clapforheroes.”
