The beautiful Cheshire village of Holmes Chapel has been unexpectedly rocked by an unusual new craze - rock-decorating.
Local mum and gardener Kailey Morris set up a Facebook group encouraging children to decorate rocks and hide them around the village to be discovered and rehomed by others. Kailey was suprised by the response:
"The reaction to the group has been amazing. It has taken off really quickly, and has become huge – it’s a bit like an Easter egg hunt, but with rocks. The aim of the group is to bring the community together and encourage children to get arty and get out in the nice sunshine."
The craze has been so popular that local parents have been posting on social media asking where they could find the rocks. Seeing a great opportunity to support the local community through this fun initiative, Paul Leighton, the Reeds Rains branch manager in Holmes Chapel, decided to get involved:
"I bought a bag of rocks, painted them in Reeds Rains colours, and left them outside the branch to be collected by local children. I can't believe the popularity! All the rocks have gone already."
Reeds Rains believes in building relationships with local communities to give the very best service when selling and letting property.
