Statement from The Gnome
The Gnome Rangers are a small
band of gnomers, dedicated to bringing the joy of
gnomes to the community. It has been too long since
gnomes have graced the skyline of our fair hills
suburb. We were somewhat disappointed at how quickly
many of our gnomes were taken down last time, but we
feel that this should not deter us in our mission.
It has been reported to us that some businesses in
Blackwood have replaced gnomes that were removed
from their buildings. We hope this is a trend that
We let gnomes roam free to bring
a smile to the faces of local residents. The simple
pleasure of looking up and seeing a smiling face
looking back down is what gnoming is all about.
Pensioners, small children and everyone in between
seem to get a kick out of them and the overwhelming
positive public feedback from the last gnoming of
Blackwood inspired us to continue the tradition.
Gumeracha has the Big Rocking
Horse. Kingston has the Big Crayfish. Blackwood has
Small Coloured Ceramic Men and we call on the
businesses and residents of Blackwood to keep it
