PEOPLE are being urged to seize a window of opportunity and take part in Coventry City of Culture Trust’s latest creative challenge.

Window Wanderland has got under way in Earlsdon, Whoberley, Longford, Potters Green and Wood End in style with more than 400 people showcasing their design skills.

The project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, urges people to decorate their front windows and gardens and is now moving on to other parts of the city.

It runs until March 19 and is aimed at bringing the community an city together in a fun and creative way while the lockdown is still in place.

Designs can be as simple or as elaborate as the windows’ owners like and can then be registered on the Coventry2021.co.uk website to form part of a trail for other people to enjoy as they take their daily exercise. Online workshops are also available.

From this Saturday to March 5 Window Wanderland will be extended to Coundon, Radford, Holbrooks, Canley and Westwood Heath.

It will then move to Tile Hill, Eastern Green, Foleshill, Hillfields, Rugby, Brownsover and Newton from next Saturday, March 6, to Friday, March 12.

The last leg of Window Wanderland will see Stivichall, Finham, Cheylesmore, Stoke, Wyken, Warwick Gates, Whitnash and Kenilworth take part from Saturday, March 13 to Friday, March 19.
