It’s a community project which has seen hundreds of people paint, hide in the community and then find decorated rocks in West Leeds since 2017.
But seldom has West Leeds Rocks seen a more ‘liked’ post on its social media than one showing a photograph of a rock hand-painted in a patchwork of different colours. The wording on it reads:
“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value, no matter what their colour.”
It’s a quote from Maya Angelou, an American poet, memoirist and civil rights activist.
The rock was hidden in a tree in Bramley Park by West Leeds Rocks member Daniel Marcus. It has since been found by one lucky person.
West Leeds Rocks aims to encourage people to explore their community and has more than 3,900 members. Rocks have been found as far away as Cornwall, 2,277 feet up Pen-y-Ghent, at Sandsend near Whitby – and even Barcelona in Spain!
