Feel like the New Year only just begun? Have the Easter holidays crept up on you?
If you find yourself with no plans for the kids this Easter, don’t worry we’ve got you covered! We’ve compiled a list of fantastic events and activities taking place across Redbridge. So there is nothing left to do except start booking!
1) Easter Trails at Hainault Forest & Valentines Park
It wouldn’t be Easter without a few fun trails to follow! This year you can choose from two Easter trails. The first is at Hainault Forest where you will follow the clues to defeat the wicked Winter Pixie who has hidden the signs of Spring in the Forest because he wants it to stay winter forever. At Valentines Mansion children can look for hidden eggs and bunnies in the house and gardens and pick up special treats when all the eggs are found!
2) Find that Easter Bunny!
Want to help our rangers search for signs of the Easter Bunny? At South park there are wonderful plants to have a look at, from the tallest trees to the littlest flower… and if you’re lucky you might find places where the Easter Bunny has been exploring!
Only £3 per child (payable on the day)
Book your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8559 2316
