‘Help yourself to free sand!’ – Prankster ‘gives away’ sandbags blocking York barbers on Facebook
They are meant as the ultimate deterrent.
City of York Council put a pair of huge sandbags placed in front of Q Gentlemen’s Barbers to stop it from trading.
The business was closed down due to the owners allegedly breaking Covid rules
But a prankster has found a possible way to dismantle the blockade.
Matty Tomo decided to put out a post on the Stuff For Sale In York Facebook group.
“Free sand i have x 2 bags of free sand i ordered 2 many for the back yard project,” he wrote.
“Remainder bags are left at front of shop for anyone to take free please help yourself please can people please use the covid guidelines form a queue and please keep your distances as wouldn’t like to upset the neighbours during the pandemic thanks.”
People enjoyed the joke. One commented: “Absolutely genius plan hope it goes well for you.”
