Easter Egg Hunt

The weather was unable to stop the children having their Annual Easter Egg Hunt. On Easter Monday 9th April 2012 the hunt moved from its original planned venue of The Garden of The Old Vicarage to inside the Church. About 40 children attended the hunt and after searching for the clues and chicks all the children received an egg. Other prizes were also given for the Best Decorated Egg and Easter Bonnet. The entries for both were excellent and it was clear the tremendous amount of work had gone into the works of art. (the photgraph above was taken by Jim Uney and shows many of the children searching for those clues).

Thank you to every one who attended and made it such a wonderful day despite the weather.
