Boxford post office transforms shop front with colourful collage in honour of front-line workers battling coronavirus




A convenience store in Boxford has transformed its front window into a collage of colourful tributes to thank front-line medical workers helping to tackle the coronavirus outbreak.

Vibrant images of rainbows, which have become a symbol of gratitude for the work of NHS staff during the crisis, now adorn the shop window at Boxford Stores.

Created by youngsters from the village, the store’s postmaster, Richard Haining, said the thoughtful tributes had helped to raise the community’s spirits.

“They absolutely love it,” he said. “People come in saying that the window display has cheered them up.”

Youngsters at Boxford Primary School have created their own bunting, which has been showcased at the store.

“It’s nice for them to come in and see their artwork when they’ve worked so hard,” said Mr Haining. “It really brightens up the store.”
