Wet Wellesley Easter Egg Hunt

An early Easter this year meant the weather tried it’s best to put us off but the Blackwater Bunnies will not be deterred! (Plus it’s very hard to have 200 chocolate eggs next to your desk and resist them!) 

With paper and pencil in hand, children set off into the woodland to search for our lettered eggs to make up an Easter themed phrase.

Despite the weather people seemed to have a wonderful time, with 200 trying to get round before the rain came down, and boy, didn’t it just!  We managed to hold onto the gazebos in the wind and shelter a few people. Thank you to everyone who helped me out (Bobbie, Emily, Sam and Duncan) and we will see you all next year! 

Please feel free to share your photos with us.

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’.
