Children and adults alike across Caerphilly County Borough have been raising spirits during the coronavirus pandemic by decorating their windows with rainbows.
The trend, which has gained popularity on social media, made its way to Caerphilly after the government urged everyone in the UK to stay indoors, unless absolutely necessary. to stop the spread of the virus.
Rudry mum Rachel Ridge, whose children Connie, 6, and Tilly, 4, are off school due to the pandemic and taking part in the craze, said: “We’re trying to cheer people up. The idea behind it is showing hope.
“It’s something positive in all the darkness. People aren’t supposed to be interacting, so it shows hope and solidarity in a difficult time.”
Caerphilly Observer appealed to readers to send in their pictures, and we weren’t disappointed.
Here are some of the rainbows decorations that were sent in by readers.
Why we do what we do.
For the last ten years, Caerphilly Observer has provided an award-winning, balanced, and independent news service to the people of Caerphilly County Borough.
We believe the public should be informed about their community, coherently and with context.
However, running a professional news service comes at a financial cost.
Caerphilly Observer is predominantly funded through advertising, and while this has supported us in the past, and continues to do so, we are looking to raise funding through other means.
While the print edition of Caerphilly Observer will still be free to pick up from more than 100 outlets across the county borough, we know this isn’t convenient for some readers.
For just £40 a year, readers will be able to get their copy of Caerphilly Observer posted out to them. Around £25 of this will go towards the cost of the postage, while the remaining £15 will go towards funding and developing our news service.
