Children’s rainbow pictures in West Norfolk help keep spirits up

Colourful displays can be seen at homes across West Norfolk as youngsters help keep others entertained during the coronavirus outbreak.

Children in the borough have been creating rainbow pictures to place in their windows as part of a ‘Rainbow Trail’ movement, aiming to help make walks interesting for those getting fresh air.

The movement, which is taking place across the country, asks youngsters to create the rainbow pictures and stick them in their windows for others to find on walks “especially during this hard time of self-isolation”.

Alison Carter’s son Archie, 3, created his own rainbow drawing to put in his window with the message: “This is to make you happy, love from Archie.”

Alison, of West Winch, said: “We are joining in with the Rainbow Trail around the UK allowing children to spread messages of hope whilst keeping a social distance. Archie loved joining in.

“We found out about this idea when we were invited to join a Facebook group ‘Rainbow Trail’ – someone came up with the idea to spread joy in these tough times and we thought to was a brilliant thing to do.”

The group, which was started on Wednesday, now has 95,500 members.
