See more of your pictures for Snapshot Kent getting through lockdown together

From making your own fun at home, to saluting the NHS, you've been sending us your pictures of getting through lockdown together for Snapshot Kent.

Throughout the coronavirus outbreak, all of us have had to find new ways to connect, have fun and keep active - often using methods we never dreamt of before.

We may at times feel lonely, frustrated and anxious about the future but we're pulling together to get through lockdown and we're sharing some of the ways you've been doing it with Snapshot Kent.

We want to see what you are doing in the lockdown period; how you spend your time; how you video chat with family and friends; how you spend Friday nights in your home without going out, and above all, how you have fun together.

From kids coming up with inventive ways to have fun, and treat their families they aren't able to see at the moment, to the joy our pets are bringing us, to paying tribute to the NHS, your pictures have been capturing those moments.

Here's a gallery with a selection of the ones we've received so far. (Please remember to only send one picture at a time):

Nick McDonald sent us a picture of his family holding a Great British Campout for the NHS on their driveway, while Anthony Halls sent us a picture of four-year-old Lillia Halls proudly showing off some cakes she made. He said: "She was upset she couldn’t get to see grandad to sing happy birthday. So she wanted to make him cakes to leave on the doorstep."

Entries need to be just one snapshot, taken in your home or garden between now and the day lockdown is lifted.

Apart from that anything goes. Your picture can be candid or staged, funny or contemplative.

We want Snapshot Kent to be a record of local life during this pandemic, and we will be using as many as possible to create an online gallery and in our newspapers too.

It will be a chance for us all - and future generations - all to see how the people of Kent got through these extraordinary times.
