Children's chalk drawings offer hope amid coronavirus pandemic
CHILDREN in New Elgin took to the streets over the weekend to offer messages of hope to the local community.
Using chalk, the children wrote positive messages on pavements near Beechfield Road and MacMillan Avenue.
The messages, now washed away, referred to the coronavirus pandemic and said "it will be OK" and "it will go away". They were accompanied by pictures.
Reader Nikki Darling sent the photos in to the Northern Scot. She said: "In amongst all the hell of Covid-19, some kids in my neighbourhood are turning all the paths into lovely chalk reminders for us all to be happy. How beautiful is that!"
