If you could sum up your experience of Roman Road during lockdown in one picture, what would it be?
Lockdown is slowly being lifted. Now that we are returning to a state of something resembling normalcy, we asked members of our local community to send in images summarising their experience of Covid-19.
After all, our local area drastically changed for a period of time, whether it is closed public parks or socially distanced queues.
Some of these images will be familiar to many of you. Signs of support for the NHS popped up on our social media circles; for instance, those signs on Grove Road (which have since been taken down) and the expertly painted drive-way on Morgan Street.
These images capture how our community came together in support of key workers and to show solidarity to one another during challenging times.
Other images show how people’s daily lives were impacted by lockdown, whether it is working from home or being unable to go for a daily jog in Victoria Park while it was closed.

As a not-for-profit media organisation using journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.
If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.
