A family from Llanymynech have decorated their house bricks in different colours to spread cheer during the coronavirus lockdown.

It took Carter, seven, and his five-year-old sister Harper about five hours to decorate the front of their house with chalk on Thursday (May 7).

Their mum, Summerr Morgan, said the house has already received attention from passers-by.

She said: "Our neighbours love it. Lots of people keep stopping and waving, and the lorries were honking their horns.

"It looks so pretty, they want to keep it forever - I hope it won't rain. My son even wants to do the whole house!"

It comes as children have been displaying drawings of rainbows in their windows to show support for frontline workers during the pandemic.

A round of applause from doorsteps, windows and balconies takes place across the country every Thursday evening at 8pm.
