GoGoHares galore will soon be leaping into Norwich and Norfolk for the Summer.
But before that the EDP and Evening News will be celebrating their imminent arrival by hiding some unique GoGoHares stones for people to find across the county.
Using the popular craze Norfolk Rocks as inspiration, Gorleston-based artist Rebecca Osborne has lovingly decorated 10 stones with GoGo characters for our #HaresRock treasure hunt competition – and the first people to find each one will win £100 of GoGoHares sticker and sticker book goodies.
From Monday to Friday next week we will publish a clue each day in our papers for where the first five stones will be hidden – and on Saturday, June 16 at 9am the stones will be put in their places ready for the competition to begin.
The following week, from June 18 to 22, five more clues will be revealed for the next five rocks which will be hidden from 9am on Saturday, June 23.
The competition – inspired by the Norfolk Rocks Facebook group encouraging people to hide decorated stones for people to find – is marking the countdown to the GoGoHares trails starting later this month, which celebrates children’s charity Break’s 50th anniversary.
The charity is presenting three trails in partnership with Wild in Art. In Norwich there will be a trail of 50 artist-designed GoGoHares and a trail of more than 160 leveret sculptures created by schools and community groups, and in the wider county there will be 18 moongazer hares to find.
EDP and Evening News editor David Powles said: “As the final countdown begins to the start of the GoGoHares trails, we thought we would add to the fun with our #HaresRock competition.
“We hope everyone enjoys seeking out these special stones that have been beautifully decorated by artist Rebecca Osborne – and we can’t wait to hear who finds these GoGoHares treasures!”
The first person to find each stone can claim their prize by tweeting a picture of the stone with the hashtag #HaresRock to @EDP24 or @EveningNews or message a picture to the EDP or Evening News Facebook page. The winners will receive a sticker album and 95 sticker packs, as well as two tickets for the Hare Today Gone Tomorrow event at Millennium Plain from October 7 to 10.
The GoGoHares sticker book has been created by EDP and Evening News with Break and East of England Co-op. The album costs £5 but people who pre-order it before June 17 will save £1 and pay just £4 – visit www.edp24.co.uk/hares or call 01603 772138.
