To mark the start of the new Enjoy Felixstowe More! website, a competition has been launched to find five unique hand-painted stones which have been hidden along the seafront.

Last year thousands of families took part in a similar activity when painted stones were placed around the beach area, with youngsters seeing how many they could collect and then hiding them again for others to find.

The activity has been carried on this summer – and has gone nationwide with many communities running similar projects.

Enjoy Felixstowe More! is hiding five branded hand-painted stones along the seafront and people will win a prize of £50 for each stone they find.

People can log on to the Enjoy Felixstowe More! website and join the Enjoy Felixstowe More! Facebook page to find the clues to where the prize stones are hidden, and then get searching.

Stefan Bartlett, Communities Editor at Archant, said: “The new Enjoy Felixstowe More! website aims celebrate this wonderful seaside town, working with the community to shine a light on the best aspects of Felixstowe, including its hidden treasures and wonderful places to visit and eat and the characters who make the town tick.

“This new venture is very much about working with the community. And it is very encouraging that so many of you have already shown your support by joining the Enjoy Felixstowe More! Facebook group, making contributions with pictures and posts – everything from nostalgic photos of the town to the latest information about what’s on in Felixstowe.

“If you’re not a member yet why not check it out and join the conversation. It’s a lot of fun.

“You can also contribute to the new website and help make it a beacon for all that is best in Felixstowe.

“If you’re planning to take part in the hunt for the painted stones then good luck! Make sure you let us know how you get on.”

To get involved – and get the clues – visit Enjoy Felixstowe More! or join the project’s Facebook page.

Anyone finding one of the stones should call 01473 324773, and leave their details, including phone number, to claim their prize.
