Julie said: “It lights up the faces of everyone involved, it brings a little bit of happiness and fun to this horrible situation.

“I have been a fitness instructor for over 15 years and now that my classes cannot continue, this is what I will be doing every Sunday.

“It’s a lot of fun and everyone got involved. I think other streets should create their own streets, to bring people together.”
