Rainbows have been used by Exmouth residents of all ages as a sign positivity and support for the NHS during the coronavirus lockdown.

Pictures of rainbows have been drawn/painted and displayed in windows and doors as a way of keeping spirits up during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Some have created banners hanging on the front of their houses, while others have decorated swan boats.
Since appealing to our readers for these colourful messages of support, the Journal has been inundated with photographs.
And we want that to continue.
