How To Play
Choose your object
Look out for an item of street furniture with a unique reference code - these are the pre-existing codes on the object, that are used mostly for maintenance.
A code can be a combination of letters and numbers.
To talk to an object, send a text message to the Hello Lamp Post phone number with a message in the format "
Hello OBJECTTYPE #OBJECTCODE". For example: "
Hello lamppost #325" or "
Hello post box #BS2032"
- Remember to use the hash (#) symbol at the start of a code.
- Be sure to ignore any spaces when entering your code.
Follow the conversation
You should soon get a reply. Answer the object's questions and learn what other people also have to say.
- Try to keep your replies short - a sentence or two is best.
- Keep an eye out for the special objects that don't act like the others.
