Today's edition of the COVID-19 Community Response Roundup features the uplifting analogue messages Main Streets are sharing in their towns. From banners in shop windows to marquees aside event spaces, these messages of support and hope light up downtown amidst the gloom of this pandemic. Whether you need inspiration for your own town's marquee or just need a quick pick-me-up, check out these great messages from around the Network.
