Eggs-itement is mounting for hunt

YOUNGSTERS can have a cracking time at Daventry Country park next month with the annual Easter egg hunt and bonnet competition.

The annual event has been jointly organised by Daventry District Council and the Friends of Daventry Country Park.

It is being held on Easter Sunday, which this year falls on April 8, and is for children aged up to 10 years old.

The eggs for the hunt have been donated by Daventry Town Council, along with larger eggs as prizes for the bonnet competition.

Judging the bonnets will be deputy town mayor Cllr Ron Fox and Daventry Express editor Matt Cornish.

Cllr Alan Hills, DDC’s community portfolio holder, said: “Last year’s Easter egg hunt was lots of fun and really enjoyed by all the young children who took part.”

“This year promises to be no different and we hope as many families as possible take part and have a great time.”

The event starts with registration at 9.30am.

The under fives set off at 10am followed by the five to 10-year-olds at 11am.

Coupons will be printed in the Daventry Express on March 29 and April 4.

Fill these in and take them along on the day to receive free entry to the hunt.
