If you’ve spent time wandering local streets lately you may have noticed colourfully decorated wooden spoons planted in little villages.
Spoonville has taken off around the world since the pandemic started. There are now almost 400 registered Spoonvilles, bringing delight and smiles to the people, big and little, who have joined in the fun.
Carbine Drive, St Albans Park Spoonville is the creation of Hayley Blair, her husband and two young daughters. They started their Spoonville with a sign created by Hayley’s husband and three spoons decorated by her daughters.
Every day, Hayley’s daughters, aged eight and ten, are excited to go and check on their Spoonville, which is outside the front of their house on the nature strip.
Their community has been keen to get involved and the village has gone from three spoons to dozens of spoons, all decorated in individual styles in lots of bright colours.
In a time of great uncertainty there is a great need in the community for people to engage with each other. Spoonville has been a fantastic way to keep communities connected, young and old, in a fun and light-hearted way.
