Artist Matt Cockayne is producing free colouring sheets – showing well known Sheffield landmarks – which he wants people all of ages to colour in to keep active during the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said: “With the current situation in the world and a lot of us having to stay at home, I am offering a free download artwork each week for you to print off yourself and colour in to enjoy with a brew or something to pass a bit of time with the kids.

“One artwork per week until this has blown over.”
