Gusher readers will once again be able to join a free Easter egg hunt taking place at Daventry Country Park later this month.

The free annual Easter Egg hunt, supported by the Daventry Express, is being held on Easter Sunday, March 31.

Youngsters will be able to have lots of fun trying to find the hidden chocolate eggs scattered around the park.

They will also get the chance to take part in an Easter bonnet competition that will be marked by an independent judging panel.

The event has become something of an annual tradition and is organised by Daventry District Council and the Friends of Daventry Country Park.

This year registration begins at 9.30am at the visitors’ centre, with the bonnet competition taking place at 10am.

The egg hunt will then begin at 10.30am for the under 5s and 11am for the five to 10-year-olds.

Tremayne and Belcher Estate Agents has kindly donated the eggs for the hunt, while Daventry Town Council has also given larger Easter eggs as prizes for the best bonnets brought along on the day.

The event is supported by the Gusher, so look out for the coupons in the newspaper on March 21 and 28 - just fill it in and take it along on the day for free entry to the hunt.

Councillor Alan Hills, community, culture and leisure portfolio holder at DDC, said: “The Easter egg hunt in the fantastic surroundings of the park has become something of an annual tradition.

“Every year more and more families come along on Easter Sunday morning to have some fun and try to find all the chocolate eggs that have been hidden around the park.

“There will also be an Easter bonnet competition and it’s completely free to attend so I would encourage as many people as possible to put it in their diaries and head down to the country park on the day.”
