RESIDENTS in our com - munity have been doing their best to spread the love despite being on lockdown due to coronavirus.

We have been overwhelmed by the kind gestures from the public since this news of the COVID-19 pandemic broke in the UK.

One way in which residents are sharing joy is by posting colourful rainbow drawings in the windows of a number of houses.

The idea quickly spread on social media over the weekend after a post suggested it might help brighten some people’s day.

Youngsters were encour - aged to put pen to paper while they stay at home to avoid the spread of coronavirus and displaying them in the win - dow would give other fami - lies something to look out for while they stretch their legs.

The post, which has been shared across the web, aims to make a neighbourhood-wide game of I-Spy

Here are the pictures we have been sent so far, but please send us yours in the box below or by emailing news@sthelensstar.co.uk and help spread some positivity. 

Please tell us who is on the picture, their age, and where in the borough is was taken so people in your area can look out for it.

Send in pictures of your rainbow creations to spread positivity

Please let us know who did it, their age and what area of the borough it was taken in. eg/ Rainford or Parr
