Pupils at Whitehirst Park Primary in Kilwinning have been putting rainbows in their windows to signify hope and resilience.

They believe the idea encourages people to stay safe and be kind to each other during the current coronavirus lockdown.

The trend is now making its way to pupils at other schools as well.

Children and their parents are using this time to get creative, spread joy and keep the people of Ayrshire entertained during their one spot of outdoor exercise a day.

Scotland is in lockdown. Shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald, and the vital local news service we’ve provided since 1853, is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you’re shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.  

Thanks – and stay safe.
