How have you been creative during lockdown?

This is the question Lucy Wheeler from Sidford heard when she turned on her TV to local news channel Spotlight a few weeks ago.

Funnily enough, Lucy has been very creative and wrote to the Sidmouth Herald to encourage our readers to keep busy during lockdown.

She said: “During the summer I went to the beach and started to arrange pebbles, it was a pleasure to spend time by the sea. I enjoyed it so much I kept going, looking for other things to ‘arrange’ and where to present them.

“I have done quite a few on Sidmouth beach with its beautiful red sand. I quite like the idea of leaving the design to disappear and only have the photo as a memory.”

Autumn is the perfect time of year to look out for colourful materials to use as designs.

“It’s a bit cooler now but the colours are beautiful so why not collect a few leaves and be creative! Get out there and feel the breeze....” said Lucy.

Lucy points out that she never picks living items for her displays.
