As the weeks of the coronavirus outbreak continue, so the residents of Exmouth recognise the efforts of NHS workers with their artwork.

Rainbows have been adorning windows and doorways in a variety of mediums, with the aim being to keep spirits up during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Some have created multi-coloured paper chains while others have declared their love for the NHS.

Since appealing to our readers for these colourful messages of support, the Journalhas been inundated with photographs.

And we want that to continue.

So if you feel inspired by the pictures you have seen over the last two weeks and want to create your own, please send your

photographs to daniel.wilkins@archant.co.uk and they may appear in a future edition.

Also, we want to see photos and videos of people taking part in the weekly clap.
