Let’s spread a message of hope throughout Bridgnorth by decorating windows and front gardens with pompoms, yarn bombs, flower wreaths, cardboard daffodils, posters, flower pots, hanging baskets, and ornaments – anything arty and crafty that people can create and will bring some joy and raise a smile.
The Hope Springs Eternal campaign was started by Jackie Peel in Malmesbury whose sister and mum live in Bridgnorth. Many Bridgnorth businesses have already got on board and are planning window displays – even though many are closed – to bring some cheer to the High Street.
The campaign will also give many people who are stuck at home something positive to get involved in and hopefully it will be good for the whole town to lift our spirits and unite as a community during this difficult time. The Town Council is looking to provide support to ensure that as many people as possible can be involved, and it’s hoped primary schools and children being home schooled will get involved, as well as the Brownies and other craft groups, the Bridgnorth WI and the Bridgnorth Yarn Bombers.
In Bridgnorth shops who can supply craft items are Wool & More, Creative Outlet, the indoor market, The Factory Outlet, Simply the Best and WH Smiths and Just Jayne Interiors who have offered to supply fabric off cuts for free.
