This week we are continuing to share the seven things that have put smiles on our faces over the past week. When times are tough it's good to smile, because smiling can boost your mood when you're feeling blue. 

Without further ado, let's see what has made us happy this week.


1. Whilst on my evening dog walk over the weekend, I spotted a teddy bear in quite an unusual place. It gave myself and the gentlemen walking his dog on the other side of the road a little chuckle.  

2. A mystery person had written ‘Smile’ out of stones down on Eastbourne seafront, for those to appreciate on their daily walks (while social distancing of course!)

3. Over on Instagram last week, Suzie shared her brilliant 'You are my sunshine' artwork, which brought a nice bit of positivity to our feed. We're really enjoying all of your sunshines and rainbows that you're putting up in your windows, for those on their daily walks to enjoy. Keep up the great work!

4. Students from The Eastbourne Academy wrote letters to residents of local nursing homes in their English lessons, telling the residents what they had been up to while they continued to go to school and finding out what life was currently like in the nursing home as well. Such lovely small acts of kindness. 

5. It was lovely to see the sunshine and feel its warmth this weekend. We hope you all stayed safe and didn’t get too sun burnt!

6. We would like to thank Alanna Tate for sending in her brilliant ‘Stay positive’ drawing. It really did put a smile on our faces and we also shared it on the St Wilfrid’s Community Facebook group in hope that it would make you smile too.

7. Also on our St Wilfrid’s Community Facebook group, Danielle Curtis shared the outdoor play kitchen that she made for her daughter, out of palettes and other material. It really is very impressive and we have our fingers crossed in hope that her daughter can share it with her friends very soon. 


It would be great to see the things that make you smile too. Share them on the Community Facebook group to put a smile on other people's faces as well!
