A town is being scattered with children’s drawings in a bid to brighten spirits amid the coronavirus outbreak.
As social distancing measures begin to take hold in Norfolk and across the nation, efforts are being made in Hingham to keep townsfolk occupied and enhance mental wellbeing.
One of those keen to contribute is Gem Gore, who came up with the idea of asking youngsters to draw pictures and put them in their front windows, creating a trail for walkers to follow.
The trail is already in full swing, with a number of colourful drawings dotted across the town.
Miss Gore, who works as regional manager for The Body Shop at Home, said: “My job is about empowering people so I thought ‘why don’t we try and spread some happiness?’
