Painted stones are left around the area for people young and old alike to hunt for. When finding one they can either be kept or better still re-hidden for someone else to find.
A number of competitions have been devised around the fun. In Whitchurch you can post your ‘wock’ on social media for all to see and see if you get more ‘likes’ than other wocks.
Creativity can be endless and some very simple designs as well as ornate works of art have been left around the town.
For the BBC film which explains it all see:

Why not join in – have a go at painting one, then hiding it.
