Project co-ordinator Brian Seddon runs the project Hexpress Yourself which encouraged youngsters to draw, paint and collage their thoughts and feelings of the Covid-19 lockdown in a hexagon frame.

This was then used to create a larger work of art.

There were contributions from children in Atherton, Tyldesley and Mosley Common in conjunction with Start Well Family Centre.
