Mother transforms fence into perspex window so kids can play together

A mother has transformed a section of her garden fence into a perspex window so her kids can play with their friend who lives next door.

Siblings Arlo and Arabella Devonport from Wakefield, Yorkshire, had been missing their friend and next-door neighbour Leo Adlington during the lockdown when their mother Amy Vickers, came up with a solution. 

Ms Vickers decided to make a hole in the fence, between their gardens, so the children can play with one another.

‘We measured the fence and then ordered a perspex panel on eBay, cut into the fence panel with a circular saw and drilled some holes in each corner so we could screw some screws into it to hold it in place.

‘At least now the children can see each other and chat through the window.

‘We also bought wipe board markers so they now draw pictures on it and we’ve been teaching them to play naughts and crosses on it as well.

‘The kids are at the window all day every day when we are at home so I guess they love it!’
