Spalding Rocks the Christmas Holidays

Sharp-eyed youngsters can win a top prize by finding specially-painted rocks hidden in parks and play areas across South Holland over the school Christmas holidays.

The rock hunt ‘Spalding Rocks’ is being organised by South Holland District Council as part of the authority’s new ‘think before you light up’ campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of second hand smoke.

From Wednesday 20 December, we’re asking youngsters aged up to 16 to hunt for the rocks which are painted with the ‘Spalding Rocks’ slogan and SHDC’s smoke-free mascot Big Cig.

Councillor Antony Casson, South Holland District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Public protection, said: "A total of 50 rocks have been painted with five hidden in some parks across the district. Whoever finds the most by January 6 will win a £25 voucher from Argos.

"Once you find a rock, take a photo and upload it to the council’s Facebook page, if you can then return the rock/rocks to our offices in Priory Road in Spalding with contact details, thus submitting your entry.

"I would like to wish everyone taking part the best of luck, happy rock hunting!"

Five rocks have been hidden in each of the following ten parks across South Holland:

  • • Casswell Drive Play Area, Quadring
  • • Railway Lane play area, Sutton Bridge
  • • Thorney Road in Crowland
  • • Maple Grove play area in Holbeach
  • • Tongue End Playing Field, Everard Road,
  • • Cherry Lane Play Area, Fleet Hargate
  • • Poachers Gate Play Area, Pinchbeck
  • • Cornfields Play Area, Holbeach
  • • Ayscoughfee Gardens in Spalding
  • • Monkshouse Park in Spalding
