Send us your stories of life under lockdown

We're asking Palmy people to share how you've been keeping busy in your bubble. Have you mastered sourdough, taught the dog a new trick or got busy in your garden? We want to hear.

It could be a video of you and your family perfecting new dance moves, photos of your baking wins (or fails!) or your best work-from-home outfits, or a story or poem telling us how you're feeling (the good and the bad).

Just make sure it's in good taste and appropriate for all walks of life.

We'll share your contributions on our new PalmyProud digital hub, on our social media channels, and in our PalmyProud magazine as part of a special retrospective issue looking back at lockdown life in Palmy.
