It was a case of third time lucky for Hares Rock treasure hunter Abigail Craig and her daughter Eliza.
The 29-year-old from Knowsley Road, in Norwich, was delighted to find one of our specially decorated GoGoHares stones at Eaton Park on Thursday after two unsuccessful treasure hunt trips to find another one of the rocks in another part of the city.
She said: “I was amazed, I thought I was never going to find one. It was in the car park under some trees.”
Her daughter Eliza, who is almost two, was equally delighted with the GoGoHare Robyn stone as well as their prize of £100 of GoGoHares sticker goodies.
She had a great time playing with their album and stickers when the pair collected their prize at the EDP and Evening News’ Norwich office on Friday.
The stone is the fourth Hares Rock to be found since five were hidden last weekend. The others were discovered at Cromer beach, Wymondham Abbey, and Norwich’s Cathedral Close.
One of the stones from last weekend is still to be found and another five have been hidden across Norfolk today.
Artist Rebecca Osborne has decorated them all with GoGo characters to celebrate the GoGoHares trails starting this Sunday.
Here are the clues for where the stones are waiting to be found:
• Head intu these fantastic gardens where you might listen to a trumpet band or play oversized chess.
• This Hares Rock appears where many stars have trodden, above the waves and on the board walk in this “Great” town.
• This Hares Rock can be found resting a rock’s throw from this city public sculpture.
• This Hares Rock is placed in the centre of Norwich looking up at one of the city’s most iconic sights, on the hill surrounded by trees.
• This waterfront country park owned by a famous family has all you could want, including a #Hares Rock.
• It’s a very famous view of our fine city.
The first person to find each stone wins £100 of GoGoHares sticker goodies.

The GoGoHares trails are being brought to the city and county by children’s charty Break and Wild in Art. They start this Sunday and will run until September 8.
There will be a trail of 50 large hares in the city as well as a county trail of 18 moongazer GoGoHares across Norfolk.
The second city trail of more than 160 leverets will also join in the fun from early July.
