Coping with covid – by using “where’s wally?”

Today I feature a gentleman from my local village who has created something fun for the community of Sturton by Stow.  The idea is to showcase some of the more positives events that have arisen living through this pandemic.  It’s not a walk in the park, it’s not just something that has been around for a short while but something that may affect us for a while.

Between Emma Bradley and Jason Spering created an idea to have a bit of fun but has turned in to a daily treasure hunt for the village.  They made a small Wally made out of wood, painted this and started hiding this during the evening the around the village.  Afterwards, a post would be put in the community Facebook group and whoever found it was encouraged to post a picture of them with Wally.

Jason talks to us why he created his and also about:

  • keeping fit
  • being stealthy
  • accused of breaking in!
  • 50 days
  • local press
  • effects of getting involved
  • Nemo & the future

This is just a short interview, the idea being to look at the blog article and see the photo gallery of the community taking part.  I commend there efforts for doing something positive for the local community, especially the children.
