John Wooden, 75 and Patrica Wooden, 67 of Old Catton have been decorating rocks for around a year and hiding them all over Norfolk.

They are two of many people in the county who have taken to the frenzy of more than 41,000 members on the Facebook Page.

Mr Wooden, said: 'I love art and when I found out the rocks brought so much joy to people of all ages it made me want to keep it up.

'Anyone can join in and paint the rocks, it doesn't matter how good you are, as long as it makes you feel happy.'
