Throughout a lot of community’s around the country, members of the public have designed and painted on stones and rocks and then hid them in the local area for people to find. Once these rocks have been found by members of the public, they are encouraged to post a picture of the rock on social media and to then re-hide it so others can take part.
In the upcoming February half term break, Eastleigh Football Club will be hosting a stone “Paint and Design” afternoon at Sherwoods Restaurant from 12-3pm on Tuesday 19th February 2019. All ages are more than welcome to attend. The idea being that all these rocks will be hidden in the local area for Eastleigh fans to find and re-hide.
Paint brushes, paints and stones will be provided by the club and a discounted lunchtime menu will be on offer from Sherwoods Restaurant.
Excitingly, we will be joined by a number of our First Team players and Staff who will be responsible for presenting a prize to the designer/painter of the best stone on the day as well as getting stuck in and painting their own stones.
There will be eleven player stones hidden throughout the community. If you find one of these player stones, please present it to the club shop reception at the Silverlake and you will receive a “meet and greet” with the player as well as photos and a signed programme.
If you would like to take part but you are unable to attend on this day, please feel free to paint and design your #SpitfireStones at home and then hide it in the Eastleigh area.
Once a rock has been found by a person, they should take a picture and post it to social media using the hashtag #SpitfireStones and then they should re hide it for others to then find (unless it is a player stone).
Venue: Sherwoods Restaurant, Eastleigh Football Club, Stoneham Lane, SO50 9HT
Date: Tuesday 19th February 2019
