The installation of ‘Corona Cobra’
A permanent reminder of Bampton’s community spirit has been created at our Bampton Meadows development with the installation of a ‘Corona Cobra’.
Village residents have been leaving painted rocks for others to find for several years as part of the Bampton Rocks project, which has become a popular part of village life and has also raised funds for Bampton Primary School.
The start of the Covid-19 pandemic brought challenges for the rock ‘finders’ and ‘leavers’, but the creative idea of forming a snake with the painted rocks gave the project life through lockdown.
As the enthusiasm of the community quickly grew, so did the ‘Corona Cobra’, which soon contained over 1,000 rocks.
