AFTER establishing itself as a makeshift settlement in Winnersh, Spoonyville has been moved.

The collection of spoons, painted and decorated as people, began in April as local residents got creative in lockdown.

Over the summer, the Spoonyville collective has grown to considerable number. But Winnersh Parish Council has decided the time has come to move the settlement to its next location.

They were collected on Saturday morning.
