REVAMP: Leavesden’s ‘COVID Snake’ to be repainted by local artists

 Published on: 21st October 2021   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

The ‘COVID Snake’ in Leavesden Country Park is set to be reinvigorated by local artists.

The snake, which consists of roughly 1,300 rocks painted by local children, was originally started by Abbots Langley girls Daisy and Freya Robinson in May last year.

Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) then laid the snake in cement so that it could live as part of local history.

Despite the stones being protected with two coats of varnish, some have become worn over the past year-and-a-half, leading TRDC to hire local artists to repaint the stones that lost their colour.

The artists, who will carry out the works on Monday, October 28 and Tuesday, October 29, are being paid by TRDC through Heritage Lottery Funding.

Daisy and Freya’s mum, Becky, previously told ABBOTSnews: “Everyone needed something positive, and the snake project gave them that.

“It has brought a lot of people together. The village has been amazing and supportive, and it’s a great project.”
