On Sunday afternoon two more stones were discovered. Fisrt, Amber and Logan Morris-Powley went searching on the Skirrid with their mum, Cheryl. They discovered the ‘Northern Lights’ stone at the start of the footpath that goes up the mountain from the Old Ross Road. Cheryl said, We found it on the way down lol, two hours of staring at the ground and it was right at the bottom 😂 (which the clue said of course!)

Ella-May and Olly Burton were searching around Keepers Pond on the Blorenge with their mum, Gemma, when they discovered the ‘Rainbow Hearts’ stone. Gemma said, “We had been looking for the one to do with St Michaels, but couldn’t find it. We went around the pond and were on our way back to the car, and had given up, until the kids ran off the path and found it in a hole!”
