So Much Chocolate!

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!

Eggs at Wellesley Woodlands

Which one would you choose?

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.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
