Ebberston in lockdown- a snapshot in time

Monday 23rd March 2020. Our prime minister announces the UK is on lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Shops, pubs, cafes all shut. The British public are allowed outside once a day for exercise. This was a time for the country to pull together and help each other out. This is a blog to capture this unique moment in our history. While at the time of writing lockdown restrictions are slowly beginning to lift, it is important to remember how our village coped with coronavirus.

Creative chalk drawings reminding us to keep our distance
The adopted symbol of the nation, light at the end of the rainbow
A hunt around the village for these decorative rocks
Classic humour to keep spirits up
Daily jokes to keep the village amused
Did you do this?

  1. I have enjoyed looking through your website. Our village only has a FB page and it really does not do the job well enough.
    Could you tell me how you designed the Ebberson web pages and does it cost a lot to do?
    We have started a little Newsletter since lock-down to help people feel connected. I have put a link to it below instead of a web page. You may not find it very interesting but its all we have.
    Keep up the effort you have inspired me!
