A WORSBROUGH family has chalked up another unique talking point by creating a giant tribute to the Queen.

Richard Simpson, 43, of Underhill, Worsbrough, along with daughters Darcey, eight, and Robyn, six, decided that they wanted to do something special in memory of Queen Elizabeth to mark her passing.

Richard said: “We wanted to do something nice to remember the Queen and I suggested to my daughters that they draw some pictures but they wanted to do something bigger.”

Richard came up with the idea of the chalk artwork as the family had previously created a massive rainbow in chalk during lockdown.

“We created this artwork as a memorial to Her Majesty the Queen as Paddington was a symbol of the Queen and we thought it was fitting to have her walk away with Paddington as other artists had sketched.

“I drew the outlines and the girls coloured it in.

“We did it so people can enjoy what we did and for everyone to see. Hopefully, it will make people smile at such a sad time.”

Darcey and Robyn, who both attend Birdwell Primary School were ‘absolutely chuffed’ with the finished result.
