While this autumn seems somewhat mild so far, the nights are unmistakably drawing in, and October saw us move the clocks back one hour to GMT (Greenwich Mean time).
For the month of December; Safer Roads, a partnership between local authorities in Berkshire, together with Sustrans and My Journey Wokingham, will be running a competition to highlight the importance of remaining visible during these darker times.
Inspired by Wokingham Rocks, Wokingham Borough Council are inviting schools and colleges to take part in this competition by producing your own painted rocks with the theme of staying bright at night. Be sure to mark the bottom with #WokyRocks so that others can see and share it!
Once the Rocks have been painted you’ll need to take a picture of them, and share it on social media using the hashtag #WokyRocks.
Don’t forget to hide your rock somewhere around Wokingham after you’re done for others to find and share your work!A winner will be picked at random to win a £50 Argos voucher when the competition draws to a close.
The competition will be open to all schools and residents in the borough, just be sure to follow all of the rules outlined above
