Caro Hollway, her husband Rick and daughter Rosie, 18, have unveiled their floral arrangement on the porch gate of St Mary’s Church.

Caro said: “We’ve been so cheered by all the rainbows in people’s windows, we wanted to make our own.”

Caro organises the rota for church flowers and felt that, they could still create something uplifting around Easter time.

“Lots of people are taking their daily exercise walking past the church and we wanted to send a message of hope in these difficult times.”
