Primary school pupils have been working with a parish council to provide lockdown messages to their local community.
Thomas Bullock Church of England Primary Academy and Shipdham Parish Emergency Council launched the 'Postcard for a Neighbour' campaign.
Headteacher Shannon O’Sullivan said: “The pupils have very much enjoyed being part of this caring initiative and bringing a smile to people’s faces. Our children are thoroughly enjoying writing them and sharing with their community.”
Community volunteer Helen Bridge designed a poignant postcard using the phrase 'Let your Light Shine' and ‘Together We Help Shipdham Shine’.
She said: “Sometimes, small gestures are all it takes to brighten someone’s day and ease feelings of loneliness; and who doesn’t love to see a handwritten postcard land on their doormat?"
