Eggcellent turnout for Easter activities

EggstravaganzaThe annual Easter Eggstravaganza saw a great turnout for families throughout the district.

Despite a couple of April showers, over 350 people joined in with the activities during the Easter holidays.

Hosted on Bouskell Park, Blaby, one of the many parks and open spaces in our area, enthusiastic parents and children donned their wellies and enjoyed the activities on offer, including football penalties (see photo) and hockey.

Youngsters also had the chance to try out their putting skills.

Xplorer Orienteering also proved popular, with children hunting different signs across the park and a sweet treat at the end as a reward.
