The Friends of Apex Park, based in Burnham-on-Sea, hosted a rocks art colouring and painting morning within the park, in Marine Drive.

Children decorated the stones and many were hidden around the park for passers by to find.

The decorated pebbles displayed personal messages, names and even football teams.

Rocks art is popping up across the country, with stones being left in places to be found by others in popular tourist spots.

A spokesman for the Friends of Apex Park said: “We would like to thank the parents for their generous donations which were received on the day.

“They will be put towards future events in the park during 2018.”
