WITH lockdown preventing people from travelling to new areas, Raglan has brought a new village to the community - Spoonville.
The village accepts anyone from businessmen to fairies, provided they're made with love, joy and a spoon.
Local resident Megan Russell said her friend noticed the trend online and suggested their children give it a go.
"It seems like a bit of a craze. I think it started in Victoria when they had their big stint of lockdown," she said.

Mrs Russell's two boys and her friend's two girls each made their own spoon person and then walked down to Raglan Public and began the village outside the school entrance.
What started as a businessman, a monster and two fairies has now turned into a little community of 22 spoons and Mrs Russell is encouraging everyone to join Spoonville.
"It's there for everybody to add and bring some enjoyment to, so if you're looking for something to do during the lockdown period, then create a spoon and add it to the little village," she said.
With a lot of children missing their friends, she said the village is a great way for them to still feel connected.
Mrs Russell said it has also encouraged her boys to go for walks as they are now excited to go past the school and see if there are any additions to Spoonville.
