Rebecca Lockyear has painted a picture, using a photograph taken on Sidmouth beach.

Speaking to the Herald, Rebecca said the photo was taken on her daughter’s 30th birthday, in November 2019.

She added: “She and a bunch of friends racing towards the sea, happy days.

“I am really looking forward to when we can do this again, let’s make the chain of hands even longer next time.

“It is great to celebrate the important things in life such as human kindness and the beauty of our natural environment.

“Well done everyone for maintaining this necessary lockdown and for being such great neighbours.”
