Rainbows Over Thamesmead

I live in a small part of Abbey Wood sandwiched between the railway and the grey buildings of Thamesmead.

A few years after moving here my husband died.

I was very depressed and everything seemed to be grey but one day coming down the hill towards Abbey Wood station the sky was lit by a beautiful double rainbow. It brightened the estate and brightened my mood and I began to feel hopeful.

Since then I have always looked out for Thamesmead’s rainbows.

Situated in a large valley by the river the rainbows are particularly beautiful.

So remember there is always hope.
