Egg-citing times at Haddo this weekend

THIS Easter Sunday, families from all across the North East will converge upon Haddo Country Park for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

The hunt, which is organised each year by the Rotary Club of Oldmeldrum, is one of the biggest free public events taking place in the North East of Scotland.

Thousands of brightly coloured painted eggs will be hidden on the footpaths and around the trees for children to discover. Once found, children can either keep the eggs, or exchange them for chocolate eggs instead.

In addition to the main attraction of the egg hunt, there will also be egg decorating competitions, an egg rolling contest, a drawing and painting table, storytelling, a labyrinth and face painting. Grampian Police will be visiting, as will the BookBug. Teas and coffees will also be available on the day, served by Rotary volunteers.

The Haddo Egg Hunt takes place this coming Sunday 8 April between 10am until 3pm. Although parking and entry to the Egg Hunt is free, any donations made will help the Rotary Club to cover costs associated with the event, with any surplus being used to support Rotary charities both at home and overseas.
