There's gnome place like home in Fleet

With so many people spending so much time at gnome, a pair of cheeky visitors have been helping to brighten up lockdown for children in Fleet.

A pair of gnomes have been on a tour of homes around the village over the last few weeks, with a little help from a friend.

Youngsters have been eagerly looking out of their front doors to see if the gnomes have arrived.

“It has given us a lot of fun as we walk around the village to look for the gnomes. It brightens up our days.”
