Yesterday morning Wellesley Woodlands held its first Easter Egg Hunt around the Wellington Statue and as we had never held it before, we were relieved to see nearly 250 people turn up to have a go!
In the morning staff from Grainger, The Land Trust and BVCP arrived to set up, making sure the area was clean and tidy, as well as hiding the 11 eggs around the woods for people to find. People were so keen and eager to claim their prize that some were ready to go before 11am and we worked hard to make sure no one had to queue for too long to get their answer sheet to fill in.
It was great to see so many kids running around the woods, enjoying the sunshine (though happily it wasn’t too hot so the chocolate didn’t melt!).
Let us know if you’d like to see the Easter Egg Hunt held again.
