There will be a host of egg-cellent activities taking place at Daventry Country Park.

The annual free Easter egg hunt and bonnet competiton will be held on Easter Sunday, April 20, organised by Daventry District Council (DDC) and the Friends of Daventry Country Park and sponsored by Cummins.

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

Registration for the hunt begins at 10am at the Visitors Centre and will be followed by the bonnet competition, sponsored by Daventry Town Council. Both the under fives Easter egg hunt and the Eggsplorer trail for 5-11-year-olds will then begin at 10.30am.

DDC’s culture and leisure portfolio holder Cllr Alan Hills said:“The Easter egg hunt and bonnet competition has become a fantastic and extremely popular annual tradition in Daventry.

“Families have great fun taking part and the best thing is, with the Daventry Express coupon, it’s completely free to attend.

“There are lots of great activities taking place for youngsters at Daventry Country Park over the Easter holidays so I would encourage as many people as possible to take advantage of them.”

There will also be a Mini Mondays event this coming Monday where children can make Easter Bonnets and baskets.

Crazy Horses will be at the ark with a variety of fun inflatables and there will be free family-friendly activities offered by the RSPB, the Wildlife Trust Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire, and Action for Children.
