A creative dad has fashioned a ‘cuddle curtain’ so his children could hug their grandparents during lockdown.
Dad-of-three Thomas Ewing, 35, attached sleeves to a shower curtain in the garden of his family home.
His vision was so his children Amber Ewing, 12, Alex Ewing, seven, and Hudson Ewing, one, could safely hug their grandparents.
Site engineer Thomas surprised his mum Vicky Ewing, 64, and step dad Jim Peck, 78, with his creation later that day.
Thomas, of Gravesend, Kent, said: “I did this because my mum was really missing the kids.
“They have visited us during lockdown by standing out by the front garden but you can’t beat a cuddle with your nan.
“My mum had been desperate to visit us again so I set it up ready for when they arrived, they didn’t have a clue that I was doing it.
“It was a little bit strange but overall a huge success, mum was very emotional and the kids loved it.”
