The Egg hunt on Thursday will work in the same way it has for the last 4 years.
It is FREE! Thanks to the very generous sponsorship of Ready Steady Store (click here for their website) who have paid for all the chocolate eggs, sweets and lollies. We couldn’t run our events without their help and sponsorship – we store all our event kits there.
It starts at 11am. On arrival go to the Ready Steady Store gazebo and collect a map. On the map is marked areas of the park where coloured wooden eggs are hidden. Find the ‘eggs’ and write down the colour of the eggs on the map. Complete the Wordsearch on the rear of the map if you want to, that’s just something extra for the children to do.
Write your details on the map and hand it back in BEFORE 1pm if you want to be entered into the draw for a HUGE teddy. It will be drawn at 1pm sharp. You will get a chocolate egg for each map returned (though families can share if you don’t want one form each)
The judging of the Easter Bonnet competition will be at 1pm and will be judged by the manager from McDonald’s restaurant (and Mickie and Minnie Mouse if they’re available), near to the Ready Steady Store gazebo. The bonnet must be accompanied by the owner – we can’t take responsibility for them.
The World Hook a Duck will take the same format as usual – £1 entry per person (no concessions sorry). This year, thanks to RSS’s generosity, each child entrant will get a free egg. There will be prizes for the top junior and senior ‘duck hookers’.
Have a great time – the forecast is good and it’s going to be busy. If you enjoy the day, please consider making a small donation. Every penny will go back into the park.
