The Mayor of Dudley is inviting families and individuals from across Dudley borough to share their rainbow creations on social media as a symbol of hope and unity during the coronavirus outbreak.
The Dudley borough artist Steve Field has created his own rainbow painting for inspiration, which the Mayor has shared through his twitter feed @DudleyMayor today.
The design, which features Dudley’s iconic Pegasus statue, will be placed in the windows of council buildings in Dudley.
People can download, print and colour in a version the design or they can create their own rainbow and share. Anyone sharing on social media is asked to use #Dudleyrainbow
The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor David Stanley, said:
People across the country are already placing rainbow pictures in the windows of their homes and on social media and we thought sharing the designs would help to bring together our communities at this difficult time.
The government is asking people to stay at home to help us fight the outbreak of coronavirus and I’m reminding all our residents that they need to play their part by only leaving the home for the reasons permitted by government.
I would like to pay tribute and send my personal thanks to frontline NHS and council staff such as nurses, doctors, care workers, refuse collectors and many more who continue to serve our borough.
