A picturesque town with more than 900 Grade II listed houses and public buildings, Port Sunlight was founded in 1888 by the industrialist William Lever as a self-contained community for his soap factory workers.
The village today is an immaculately preserved example of early town planning. A prototypical garden city, Port Sunlight’s manicured gardens and parklands offer abundant green space for the village’s residents and visitors, while cultural institutions like the Lady Lever Art Gallery and The Gladstone Theatre provide access to the arts.
With just 2,000 residents, Port Sunlight is home to a small but thriving community
Both my wife Sonia and I found the communal clapping in appreciation of the work carried out by all the front-line staff, and in particular the NHS staff, to be so emotional yet insignificant when the realisation of the task they were and still are performing puts their very lives at risk.
My limited talents allow me to produce a reasonable painting and, being retired, there wasn’t much more I could contribute to making such brave peoples’ working lives any easier or safer. So I thought at least I can show our appreciation with a large rainbow and hearts representing our love of the NHS and all that they do to protect us, and do it with a passion.
