FAMILIES from across Romsey and Test Valley have continued to remain positive as our ninth week in coronavirus lockdown comes to a close.

More than 100 photos have poured in from our readers of children creating rainbows, reeling in a catch of the day and enjoying trips to the beach.

One budding photographer even managed to capture two people dressed as Oompa Loompas inspired by the popular children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by author Roald Dahl.

Now we are asking readers to keep sending in photos of their spring antics, including any stories where residents have helped key workers and the community.

This comes as a further four people who tested positive for coronavirus died in Hampshire on Wednesday, according to figures released by the NHS.

The total number of positive coronavirus cases has now reached 3,193 in the county.

As previously reported in the Romsey Advertiser, the UK was placed into lockdown on March 23 by Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
