- EASTER EGG HUNT – EASTER MONDAY 6th April.10.00am
Easter Egg Hunt- all welcome on Easter Monday 6th April
Word has it that the pesky Easter Bunny’s been at it again, this time hiding his wares around Chideock. On Easter Monday we’ll be trying to find them, but don’t worry; we’ve got some inside knowledge. If you come to Clapps Mead Recreation Ground in Mill Lane between 10.00 and 11.00 that day, you can get a map to guide you to where we hear the Bunny’s been busy. Some say that children are the best searchers for this, so bring as many along as you can. Alternatively, just bring yourselves for a pleasant (and not too long!) walk around our beautiful locale looking for clues. There will be prizes, and treats for all children who take part. More details a little nearer the day….
