Cromford Mills in Rainbow Lights
Last night, Monday 6th April, Cromford Mills joined thousands of families around the country who are taking part in the rainbow trail with their own rainbow light display. The Derbyshire heritage attraction projected a rainbow light display on one of their historic mill buildings and shared it with everyone on social media.
Simon Wallwork, Chief Executive of Cromford Mills said, “The rainbow trail is about spreading hope and uplifting people’s spirits. We think it is important to say thank you to all those key workers and NHS staff who are working hard to protect us in these difficult times, as well as everyone who is staying home to save lives.’
Like many visitor attractions across the country, Cromford Mills has closed its gates to help stop the spread of COVID-19, cancelling 50 events to date and furloughing over 30 members of staff in the process. They now rely solely on social media to engage creatively with their visitors and are posting a range of light-hearted and informative content to try to keep spirits up.
Conscious of their cancelled educational programme, they are also developing free online learning resources on their website for families.
