Countdown to Painswick Playgroup's Easter Egg Hunt

Where: Painswick village centre

When: Saturday, April 20, 12 noon to 4pm

There are only a few weeks to go until the annual charity Painswick Playgroup Easter Egg Hunt, taking place around St Mary's churchyard and the village centre on Saturday, April 20.

More than 30 beautifully designed eggs will be hidden all around the village for you and your little ones to find, and every completed trail will be rewarded with a chocolate prize.

The theme this year is children's books and local egg sponsors, the playgroup, the Croft School, as well as some highly artistic mums are in the process of creating some amazing eggs!

There's even a grown-up set of clues so it promises to be a great day out for all the family.

Attractions this year will include bouncy castles, food stalls, face painting, tombola as well as a delicious homemade cake stall, and much more.

There will be a special appearance by the Easter Bunny, with plenty of opportunities to have your photo taken with him.

And don't forget to bring your favourite cuddly toy for the teddy bear parachuting from the church spire.

Maps for the event will be on sale from The Falcon Pub, the library or the playgroup in Painswick, and will be £3 in advance or £4 on the day per child (under 2s are free).

Plenty of free parking will be available at the Painswick Recreation Ground in addition to the usual parking around the village and at Stamages Lane car park.

All money raised goes directly to Painswick Playgroup to improve facilities for the children. The playgroup is a non-profit making charitable organisation run by the community and has recently retained its Ofsted Outstanding status.
