Wednesday 4 April 2012 is a date that all parents need to get in their diary to avoid disappointing the kids.

Children of all ages are being invited to come along to Pittville Park on Wednesday 4 April and enjoy some ‘eggcellent’ fun at this year’s hugely popular annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Hosted by Cheltenham Borough Homes (CBH), in partnership with Cheltenham Borough Council (CBC) and sponsored by Community Café Co this popular event is totally free and is open to anyone to attend.

To get the delicious treasure, from 11am youngsters will have to find a magic phrase by solving clues scattered around the park. Once they have the cracked the clues all the children will be rewarded with a fabulous prize.

As well as the Easter egg hunt the CBC play rangers will be on hand to provide a variety of fun activities and arts and crafts workshops.

Caroline Walker, Head of Community Services at CBH said: “We are delighted to once again be hosting this year’s Easter Egg Hunt which promises to be a fantastic family day out. Previous years have proved to be very popular so we would encourage everyone to come along early to make sure they don’t miss out.”

This year the prizes have very kindly been donated by Cheltenham Café Co who run the Central Cross Café and Pittville Boathouse based in the park.

Attendance to the event is on a first come first serve basis with registration closing promptly at 12:30pm – anyone joining the queue after this time will not be permitted to take part in the Easter Egg Hunt

Children aged up to 16 years old welcomed and under 11’s must be accompanied by an adult. Children are asked to please bring along a pen or pencil.

In the event of bad weather the Easter Egg Hunt will be cancelled and postponed until a more suitable date.
