Katy Rudd and Joe Wyer
This photograph was taken on the commemorations of VE Day, 8 May 2020, a beautiful sunny day. During lockdown we couldn’t see our family or friends. And Katy’s freelance work in the theatre had disappeared over night. Our 3 metre-square front garden had become our haven as we spent hours playing with our son Wilf and reading stories. On VE Day, we hung up Wilf’s great grandfather’s Second World War flag in our small patch and had a picnic - our neighbours did the same. Lockdown had been hard, but it had brought our community together and it had given us time together as a family. We were feeling grateful for that.
