During these difficult times and the coronavirus pandemic, children in and around Watford spread some joy and positivity by putting up pictures and drawings of rainbows in their windows.


“Chase the Rainbow” is a national campaign and Watford is now part of it, as rainbows have started to brighten up many windows around town. The trend began online and many schools across the country are encouraging their pupils to join in.


The idea behind the campaign is that children can go out for a walk once a day, however, they are not able to see their friends. Thus, when looking at their friends’ windows rainbow pictures work as a sign of hope that this will all end soon!


Share your rainbow pictures with us on social media and lets all help spread some positivity and lift spirits during these uncertain times! It could be drawings that you or your children have created and/or pictures of any that you have spotted on your daily walks.

A few words from Visit Watford during Coronavirus

During these testing times, we all need to stay active and make compromises. We know that the reason you usually come to our channels is for a dose of inspiration and ideas on the very best ways to organise your visit or spend your free time across Watford.

Making a trip out of the house to explore over the coming weeks is not recommended by the government and we want you to stay safe and protect your loved ones. However, here at Visit Watford we are still committed to sharing with you everything that’s great about our town.

Thus, you may see some changes to the content we’ll be posting; with more of a focus on supporting our community, sharing a few things to look forward to, and providing a little distraction during times where you may be stuck indoors.

We’ll be championing Watford’s independent businesses, keeping you up to date with great stories from our community and continuing to share incredible photos from across the area which we hope will put a smile on your face – visit our social media channels for more.

Got ideas of content you’d like to see from us? Nominate your neighbour or friend as a local hero, if you think they deserve a special mention – we’d love to hear your story! Get in touch at marketing@visitwatford.com or share it on social media & tag us/ use the hashtag #watfordlocalhero.

Stay safe,
Visit Watford team
