FROM dementia care workers, moving tributes and a Dad who dressed up as a Transformer, your stories of life in the pandemic are forging a picture of lockdown life in Bradford.

It's been one week since entries opened for the Bradford 101 project, forming the making of a city-wide art exhibition and special T&A supplement.

The Bradford 101 project aims to tell the stories of 101 Bradfordians aged between nought and 100 - a person for every age - relaying their experiences, in just 100 words, of what it’s like to live through the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

The exhibition will consist of four large pods placed around Bradford city centre, which will all be decorated on each of their two-metre long sides with the words of the 101 readers’ coronavirus tales.

So far, our reader's have revealed both the good and bad moments of the past six months - from the pain of losing loved ones to the virus and those who fought their loneliness with Zoom calls.

One of those to share their perspective was Natasha Graves who said she has experienced "the hardest time I've ever been through".

In a heartfelt note attached with a photo of her late father, she said: "My dance school closed so finance was a big problem but my support network of my dance family was gone.

"My dad sadly passed away in Cyprus alone and we couldn’t be with him that will haunt me forever

"But through it all I had my son by my side, we ate well, we talked, we became best friends and for that I’m grateful."

15-year-old Joe Rainbow told how he played guitar via Zoom video call for his Granddad everyday.

He has not yet been able to reunite with him.

Joe said: "It has been a tough experience as I have not been able to meet up with my friends and family with all the restrictions in place.

"However, I have enjoyed multiple zoom calls with my Grandad in which I play my guitar for him.

"He loves to hear me play on a daily basis and it is something I also enjoy. Hopefully we will soon be able to meet again once the lockdown is eased."

Throughout the pandemic the T&A has reported many stories of heroism and extraordinary selflessness, with volunteers helping people in need within their communities, NHS and care workers battling on under extreme pressure, and other key workers keeping the district going.

However, you don’t need to be a hero to take part. We want to hear from everyone who has a story to tell. How have you coped with the new challenges brought by lockdown and the virus? How have you found everyday activities like shopping and home working?
