The following afternoon B came with us on our walk, and I realised what had been going on. Every path in the park contained chalked messages of hope, encouragement, affirmations and joy. It was a wonderful thing to see and genuinely cheering. I don't know whose idea it was, but it was such a sweet thing to do in these troubling times and I thank them and the children for a beautiful project. I took my phone with me today to snap a few photos, I haven't really done it justice - these were all written on just one path, and it's challenging trying to hold a phone still with a greyhound skittering about on her lead.
The schools are closed now, so I guess it was an 'end of term' project which brought everyone together in a positive light before all went their separate ways.
Thanks for visiting, stay safe, and see you next week
