10:00 - 16:00
An official world record attempt is coming to the village on Saturday 27th April as the centre-piece of the annual Spring into Cranleigh event.
Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce, organisers of the village-wide shopping event, have registered an application with Guinness World Records to win the title of “Largest display of painted pebbles/stones”.
This record attempt was inspired by the success of the Cranleigh Rocks group, started by Cranleigh in Bloom last year. Membership of the group on Facebook has quickly grown to nearly 1,000 local people who take part in the game by decorating, hiding and finding painted pebbles around the village.
World record attempt timing
The display will be built in Fountain Square between 9am and 2pm, with VIP guests laying special painted pebbles at regular intervals throughout the day. Our independent judges will then verify the record attempt at 2pm, with the display remaining open for viewing between 2pm and 4pm.
At 4pm, the painted pebble display will be carefully packed away by our group of volunteers. Painted pebbles will be handed out, randomly, on a first come, first served basis. We hope you will take some painted pebbles away and hide them around the village at a later date, in order to continue the Cranleigh Rocks game!
Cranleigh Painted Pebble Hunt
Starting on Saturday 13th April 2019, the Cranleigh Painted Pebble Hunt is a fun and free game for all of the family to enjoy.
Simply pick up a treasure hunt form from one of several locations in the village or download one from here:
Use the clues on the form to locate all of the special painted pebbles in Cranleigh shops, before dropping your completed form into Cromwell Coffee House, Manns of Cranleigh, or Informed Choice, by Monday 29th April.
The correctly completed forms will be entered in to a prize draw to win a lovely pebble painting kit!
