The pebble painting and hunting craze, which always proves popular in the school holidays, shows no sign of stopping for a festive break.

In the Felixstowe Finds Facebook group, which has a staggering 10,451 members, Jane Smith posted a pebble featuring an elf called Freddy.

On the back of the rock she wrote the name ‘Santa’, and then hid it by her niece’s front door.

Jane said: “She was very excited and really believes Santa painted it.”

Joining in with the Suffolk rock craze from Australia is Fay White, whose sister lives in Needham Market.

She says she enjoys seeing all the Christmas rocks in the Suffolk Rocks group, which has been running an Advent rock painting competition.
