Sketches of Fearnan

Jo has shared some pages from her sketchbook.  They are delightful and beautifully encapsulate aspects of Lockdown, from the empty shelves in the Co-op, cancelled holidays and social events to the mice who took ‘stay at home’ too seriously and took up residence in a nice comfy couch in Fearnan.

NHS Tribute

This time, our NHS tribute is a celebration of some of the rainbows that people have been making and putting in their windows.  Cath McG made the first one – Bridge Over Troubled Water.  She said “ I heard Welsh doctors and nurses singing this song last week; it was so meaningful and lovely it brought me to tears. I love the song anyway so thought I would use it on my rainbow.”

Other rainbows came from Moira and Joe (courtesy of Joe’s niece Evie), and from Peter (courtesy of Sheila’s neighbours Amelia (10) and Ellis (7)).  Peter also spotted the rainbow-themed street sign on one of his daily walks in EH5.

If you have a rainbow on display for the NHS, send a picture to and we’ll make a montage for the next Blog.  If you have a photo of a real local rainbow, send that too.

Lockdown Moments

Moira shared some pictures including a very impressionist-like photo of the loch, taken by Joe.

“I’ve enjoyed some lovely rides on Drummond Hill. We have been busy in the garden and also extending the fences in the horse pasture. The pasture was harrowed last week, which was very exciting! You can tell we are in lockdown when having the field harrowed is the highlight of our week!”

Looks like she’s not the only one who has been enjoying  Drummond Hill – and it seems the animals get the best views.

Many thanks to Keith for the photo of the dogs, and also for the ones of the Tawny Owl and chicks below.

Keep safe, everyone. If you have any photos, rainbows or artwork to share, please send it to . We’d love to hear from readers in other villages, towns and cities.

About Fearnan Village Association

Fearnan Village Association was formed in 2007 to provide a means through which those who live in the village can come together to discuss and respond to issues of importance to the village, particularly those that will have an impact on our quality of life. We also organise social events, such as the very popular Pudding Night in February, Strawberry TeaZ in July, and other events and coffee mornings throughout the year.
