Dwane the Rock Snake!

Hi everyone, we have a new resident in the grounds of Christ Church Celbridge - His name is Dwane and he is a rock snake - So far he just has a head - He wants you to help by giving him a body
You are invited to paint a rock with a positive message and add it to our rock snake. It's a lovely family project and a great way to occupy kids or grandchildren who are off school.
Any questions or issues accessing or transporting stones or paint please get in touch by replying to this message
