Logan Goodale received the gift after he and his younger brother placed their hand-painted rocks, all bearing positive messages, around Walpole St Andrew.

The boys’ mum, Nadine, says they decided the hide the messages around their home village to “put a smile on faces young and old”.

She said: “Logan and myself would like to say a massive thank you! We recently painted some rocks and hid them around the outskirts of the village.

“Logan and his brother wanted to make people smile while key workers are at work and while people are on their walks and to just generally put a smile on faces young and old.

“We then received a special message to say a special gift was left for Logan at the spot he hid his rock.

“We are completely speechless and want to thank this special person for their kindness and generosity.”

The rocks are all multi-coloured and sport messages of encouragement for those feeling uneasy during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

One large pink rock has the message “NHS Thank You”, while another says “don’t worry about a thing, because every little thing is going to be alright”.
