Parks promise Easter treat for youngsters

Easter egg hunt.

Sweet-toothed youngsters are being invited on a tasty treasure hunt throughout the borough’s parks this Easter – searching for tasty treats.

Popular Easter egg hunts, free of charge, are being staged again in 2012 by Walsall Council’s parks development team. And the egg-stravagant activity comes to Bloxwich’s famous King George V Playing Fields on Saturday 7 April!

Others in the series of events are on Friday 6 April at Willenhall Memorial Park and in Holland Park in Brownhills on Easter Sunday 8 April.

Palfrey Park will also host a hunt on Monday 9 April and the events come to a close on Tuesday 10 April at Pleck Park.

Teams of under 10s and teams of under 14s are being invited to take part in the fun events. Each team can have a maximum of three members. Registration for all hunts is at 10.30am and they will get under way at 10.45am.

At Willenhall, Bloxwich and Brownhills, youngsters should meet at the play areas. In Palfrey they should go to the mess room and meet at the pavilion in Pleck.

John Millard, Walsall Council senior park ranger, said: “The Easter bunny has already been busy, hiding some chocolate treats ready for the treasure hunts next month.

“The events are free, so won’t break the bank for families this Easter, and as well as being in with a chance of winning, youngsters can enjoy fresh air and exercise in some of the borough’s lovely parks.”
