AS we near the next easing of lockdown restrictions, we are taking a look back at one of the symbols of hope which inspired so many people during the first national lockdown – the rainbow.

Our Guardian Camera Club members have been sharing colourful photographs taken in Cheshire, from rainbows brightening up the sky, to bursts of colour in the community. 

The Camera Club group can be found by searching for it on Facebook, where you can find the full selection of rainbow images.

It is for readers of the Northwich, Knutsford and Winsford and Middlewich Guardian.

Once you have joined the group, you can take part and post your own photographs.
