The Good News Week (29/04/2020)


Offering hope and inspiration to us all in these difficult times, as they make headlines for making their corners of the world a better place, this is The Good News Week.

You’ll notice this is the first one we’ve done in a few weeks but given I am still working from home – and feel so fortunate to do so – and it’s taken a while to adjust, I decided I need to be kind on myself and my energy levels. So if they’ve been sporadic I hope you understand.

If you enjoy the stories we’ve found this week, let us know – remember this is a place for you to share any good news you find too, be it local or national – and from wherever in the world you are!

If you find something positive in the news that you think we should feature on next week’s blog, then you can leave your comments below or send us a message on our Instagram using our DMs.


First this week from the Ipswich Star, the sweet story of three brothers – Max, Jay and Zak Dean – who have found a way to keep interacting with their neighbourhood postman whilst lockdown measures continue, via a game of ‘noughts and crosses’ that has caught on across the world. Read more here.

BRINGING THE MUSEUM TO YOUR HOME runs the story this week of The British Museum taking a unique new approach to help visitors prevented from visiting them whilst they remain closed due to the lockdown. They have now made over 1.9 million images of their collections free to view and explore online from the comfort of their homes. Find out how to access them here.


Finally this week, have news from the popular Adventure Aquarium in New Jersey, of the birth of their third baby blue penguin chick. Born on 2nd April, they are now weighing a healthy 11.6 ounces and baby and mother are both doing well. See more of this cute new bundle of fluff here.
