Hippos Sighted All Over Rutland

People who live in London, or have visited it in the last few months, will be aware of the brightly coloured elephants that appeared all over the capital earlier this year.

Now a similar phenomenon has appeared in the tiny and lovely county of Rutland, with multiple sightings of jolly hippos.

The hippos can be seen in both the county`s small towns, Oakham and Uppingham, as well as several villages, including Clipsham, Lyddington and Manton.

Among those sponsoring hippos are Don Paddy`s and the Goldmark Gallery, both in Uppingham, and the local M. P. Alan Duncan.

Do go and have a look. Perhaps you could time your visit to coincide with my "Oakham" Guided Walk on Wednesday 15th September.
