A THOUGHTFUL Easter Ross resident is helping locals open a fresh chapter on their coronavirus lockdown experience.

A box of books was placed at a bus shelter in Nigg by Lilli Marshall as a gesture to the local community.

Posting the availability of books locally, she said: "At the bus shelter in Nigg I have placed out a box with books to give away, feel free to help yourself but please be hygienic and mindful of others when doing so. Happy reading!"

The titles include kids books and some adult fiction. They're free to take but donations for NHS charities are invited.

The idea has been warmly received with several hailing it a great idea.
