Blaze, Poppy and Ethan with their colourful pictures. Inset: The family’s colourful window display.

Spreading joy from inside out

Families in South Holland following the rules to stay at home and in self-isolation are spreading colourful messages of hope by painting rainbows and other colourful things to display in their windows.

One such family is Crystal Barnett (25), partner Stephen Rudd (21) and their three children Ethan (5), Blaze (3), and Poppy (2), who have been “extra busy” making signs.

The family wanted to share their positivity.

Crystal said: “This is to help give some hope and make people smile who walk by our home.”
