Mr Hillyer has been acting as the prehistoric creature throughout lockdown, where he even ran the length of the village to make sure that no-one living in the area missed out Marlow Bottom’s very own blue dinosaur.

It was later revealed that Mr Hillyer revealed around 13km to make sure that everyone saw the dinosaur.

“Jonathan’s Jurassic mission was to show kids that being nice, just because we can, is a positive thing which can go a long way.

“Another remarkable act of kindness that has emerged during the pandemic and which celebrates Marlow Bottom’s vibrant and caring community spirit.

“He was amazing and he made sure he didn’t miss any roads, the little children (and those of us not so little ) loved it!”
