FAMILIES from across Romsey and Test Valley have continued to remain positive as our 18th week in coronavirus lockdown comes to a close.

Dozens of photos have poured in from our readers showing families walking in the countryside, enjoying being back in playgrounds and posing with animals.

One budding photographer even managed to capture a family among a field of sunflowers on a sunny day.

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.

You can send your photos and stories to news@romseyadvertiser.co.uk or message us on our Romsey Advertiser page on Facebook.

This comes as the coronavirus infection rate decreased in Test Valley in the last 24 hours.
