I started Ackworth Rocks Facebook group over two years ago where children in the village had to paint and hide rocks, then once found post a picture on the group.
On the 15th of May 2020, I had an idea, and posted on a Facebook page about creating a scarecrow festival, which created 30+ responses! Every year, as a family we visit annual scarecrow festivals, and have done from being a small child. Disappointed that due to lockdown, we were not able to visit these events. I asked the town of Featherstone to create one!
As a nurse on a Covid Palliative Care Ward I’ve been very anxious about bringing my nurses uniform home. I saw a post on a Covid nurses Facebook group, and it was someone making uniform bags. A friend of mine had been wanting to help the nurses and I suggested this idea. Within a few days there was a small army of about 4 ladies who began making bags and dropping them on my gate post for me to take into work and distribute to staff.
I’m in lockdown with my 84 year old mum who had a stroke 5 weeks ago (she’s doing brilliant), she’s living in her little spare room looking out at her 97year old neighbours blank pebbledash garage, so I decided, as artists do, I’d like to paint a mural on that wall to remember our time here together in isolation.
