This was a new date and place for our normal Easter Trail – in our Community Orchard. This meant that those who had never visited the orchard got a chance to enjoy it and hopefully return at weekends when it is open.
Around 70 children, and their parents and grandparents, collected a quiz sheet and followed the trail using the clues to answer questions on wildlife past and present, it didn’t matter if they couldn’t work out all the correct answers as they could still collect a small prize for taking part.
They could then have a much-earned cup of tea, coffee or squash and the children could make their own Pterodactyl, or colour in a themed picture to take home.
There was also a book and plant stall. The plant stall remains in the orchard – which is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
Thank you to all the helpers who made the day possible.
