What is Spoonville?
Spoonville is a fad that started during COVID lockdowns in 2020 where local communities created decorated wooden spoon villages. It was very popular in Victoria last year, however it never really took off in Sydney as we weren’t in lock down for that long – well haven’t things changed! We’re currently 11 weeks in, and with kids not returning to school until end of October/November, Spoonvilles have been sprouting up all over the Hills. Below is a list of some of them.
If you don’t have one close to you, don’t go out of your way to visit one of those listed – maybe start one in your local area instead! Here’s a link to a website that contains the ‘rules’ for creating a Spoonville Village.
