Fun at Ridgway
So many of us are adapting to working from home now along with looking after and schooling our children – many of the Ridgway staff are doing just that!
We have come up with a few ways to keep you entertained as a family whilst staying safe at home. We would love to share your creations to bring some colour to our world as we all go through this together.
Stay at Home – Stay Safe – Save Lives
Colour-in an NHS Rainbow for our Trucks
The whole country is feeling proud of our NHS & Keyworkers at this time and the bright colours of the rainbow are filling our windows as a thank you to them
We would love to display your pictures in our trucks so we can show our support to the wonderful work our NHS & keyworkers continue to do – our drivers have to keep on delivering – so adding a bit of colour to their cabs would be great
GET COLOURING . . .
