A five-year-old Womble’s egg-cellent initiative has helped raise smiles across the Easter weekend.
Chance Savic told his parents he wanted to do something to make children happy over Easter.
So he and his family have been painting Wombles on rocks and hiding them around Spalding to be found.
Children who discovered them could trade them in for an Easter egg at Ayscoughfee Cafe.
In total the family painted and hid 30 stones every day for five days over the Easter period.
They painted Wombles on the stones after litter picking as part of The Wombles of Spalding Common group and because they wanted people who use the likes of Ayscoughfee Gardens to dispose of their rubbish responsibly.
Mum Rebecca said: “This was all Chance’s idea to organise and do this as he wanted to make other children happy.
“We are fellow Womblers and have been a part of Spalding Rocks since the first lockdown. Painting and hiding stones for other children to find has helped us during the lockdowns.
“Our little one suggested to us to do something to make the children happy during Easter weekend as there were no local Easter egg hunts on. So he and his daddy got painting stones to hide in exchange for an Easter egg.
“We incorporated it with the Wombles to encourage people to help keep Ayscoughfee and Springfields Gardens clean whilst out searching for hidden stones.
“We would go down early every morning for five days hiding the stones and we kindly had help from Ayscoughfee Cafe as they helped us to give out the Easter eggs in exchange for the Wombles stones.
“We are proud of his kindness and thoughtfulness of others.”
