A large piece of artwork has gone on display to reflect the experiences of Lymm residents, business owners, workers, and children of all ages during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Organised by Kids Planet Lymm, a variety of images have been used as a record for future generations in Lymm to understand how and why lives changed in 2020-21. From images that symbolised how people felt, to those highlighting how the community pulled together as well as the challenges and joys of homeschooling, the final piece of artwork is currently on display at the Lymm Heritage Centre.
On visiting the artwork with a group of pre-schoolers from the nursery on Eagle Brow, our Nursery Manager Laura Kyriacou said: “It was lovely to visit the centre with our children who enjoyed spotting some of their friends and family in the final display. It’s brilliant to have had so many of the Lymm community including our nursery families contribute to this brilliant record”.
Heritage Centre Treasurer Patrick Knowles explained:” The Heritage Centre has been created entirely by volunteers from our local community for the benefit of all and it’s great to be able to work with local groups and businesses to help encourage more people, young and old into see us. The display showcases some wonderful images during this challenging time and we hope many people will come in to view it this summer”.
The artwork is currently on display at the Lymm Heritage Centre on Legh St and is open Thursday- Sundays 1-5 pm.
