Leicestershire housebuilder David Wilson Homes has recently helped youngsters arrange a rock hiding activity in Wigston to occupy children over the recent school holidays, as the weather gets warmer.

DWEM – SGB-20097 – The cubs and beavers hiding their rocks at Wigston Meadows ready for the school holidays

99th Leicester Cubs and Beavers, which operates from Wigston Magna Methodist Church, received a donation of small rocks from the developer for painting last year, and pushed the activity back due to Covid restrictions. The rocks were hidden around David Wilson Homes’ Wigston Meadows development, off Newton Lane, for the children that live there to find over the school holidays.

Rachel Sheard, Group Leader at 99th Leicester Cubs and Beavers, said: “Our cubs and beavers did a brilliant job in decorating their rocks with a variety of spring themes and had great fun visiting Wigston Meadows to take part in the hiding activity.”

Among the painted rocks were chicks, rabbits, Easter eggs and flowers, in addition to messages of ‘Happy Easter’.

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “We enjoyed the opportunity to help 99th Leicester Cubs and Beavers get out into the community and provide some entertainment over the school holidays with our rock painting activity.

“There were some fantastic creations from everyone involved and it has been great to see local residents getting involved in their community”

Wigston Meadows currently has a selection of three and four bedroom homes available with prices from £332,995.

David Wilson Homes is inviting members of the local community to join in with new creative projects. Last year, it welcomed the Cazlyns Craft Club to ‘yarn-bomb’ its show home with a range of Christmas-themed knitted creations, which included a handmade Christmas tree.
