Bedford station is looking brighter, thanks to dozens of posters by young local artists who wanted to say “thank you” to key workers using Bedford station to get to work.
Station Manager Bernadette (“Bernie”) Lee asked pupils of Bromham Lower School, Goldington Academy and King’s Oak to draw pictures about how coronavirus was affecting their lives.
The children, aged between six and 10, have now shown their gratitude to a range of key workers, feelings in a range of colourful drawings that have been laminated and put up around the station.
“We are so grateful to all the young artists who have produced such beautiful pictures and messages,” said Bernie.
“They have certainly brightened up our temporary barriers with their wonderful art, and I hope they cheer up key workers who see all the heartfelt thanks and wishes from children as young as six and seven.
“To any teachers having to travel, take a look at the posters because you might see your pupils’ work!”
It isn’t just NHS key-workers who have been recognised either, with drawings also showing appreciation for those in food shops and pharmacies, warehouses, emergency services, postal services, schools, councils, IT and public transport.
