It's time to give Trafford Police a well-deserved pat on the back.
Amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and UK lockdown, police forces up and down the country are doing everything they can to keep our communities safe, but that's not all they've been doing.
Some have been going that extra mile to bring joy and put smiles on faces too.
In Trafford, they have been delivering Easter Eggs and chocolate treats to families across the borough with rainbows in their windows. How brilliant is that?
In a post on Facebook, the neighbourhood policing teams from GMP Trafford North & West confirmed that they would be leaving gifts for those who took part in the 'NHS Rainbow Poster in the Window' competition.
"Today whilst the team are on patrol in Urmston & Partington officers will be on the lookout for homes displaying Rainbows in the front window".
"We will leave an Easter Egg on your doorstep where we can".

The chocolate eggs were kindly donated to GMP as competition prizes from local stores Tesco Stretford, Asda Trafford Park and WHSmith Trafford Centre.
Posts, pictures and videos of PC Walsh and team soon started to appear on social media and in the Urmston M41'ers Facebook community group on Thursday afternoon. It's safe to say, people were pretty chuffed about it.
The efforts of PC 'Walshy' and team really did not go unappreciated either.
So many delighted residents left their messages of support for what their local neighbourhood policing team is doing to put a smile on faces across the borough.
It's great to be able to share stories of such positivity like this.
From all of us here at The Manc, it's a big thank you to the Greater Manchester Police for all you are doing!
