Paint them. Hide them.
The new international craze has hit Warwick - thanks to Lianne, who is always looking for new and innovative ways to get young people active. And this is a great way to get children and families out and about, hiding and finding the stones other people have painted.
Lianne has set up a Facebook group - Warwick Rocks CV34, UK - for people to share pictures of their stones and clues! Everyone is welcome to join in the fun! Just search for & ask to join the community page...950 members and counting!
Lianne is the first to point out that she was hit by the sporty and not the creative gene - she leaves that to her 8 year old daughter!
