During this time we’ve all been locked in our houses everyone had been looking for things to do.

To help encourage community and exercise Arlene Raife started a project in Hylands Park called the Covid Cobra while we were all on lockdown.

It started with just 5 painted stones and she added a post to Facebook and a poster nearby asking people to paint a stone and to add it to the Snake.

Since then over 500 stones have been added to the project

The Cobra is a lovely positive thing for our community and it brings us together while we socially distance
