1,000 children enjoy Easter Egg Hunt around King’s Lynn town centre

A glorious Easter Saturday saw hundreds of families take part in a King’s Lynn-wide Easter Egg Trail, organised by the Vancouver Quarter.

Maps in hand, some 1,000 intrepid hunters were sent out to uncover 15 giant Easter eggs which were hidden around the town with an Easter treat for all those who managed to find ten or more eggs between 1pm and 5pm.

One lucky family is also set to be rewarded with £250 of shopping vouchers with a prize draw taking place next week for those who discovered all 15 eggs.

“After the success of our Halloween events, we decided an Easter Egg hunt was a definite for this year’s calendar. It was a lovely event and the beautiful weather helped. We hope everyone had fun and look forward to seeing them return for our upcoming free, family-friendly events,” said Vancouver Quarter centre manager Abbie Panks.

The Easter egg hunt was the culmination of a variety of events held in the Vancouver Quarter, from the spring-themed Workshop on April 6, to the Easter Bonnets and Baskets Workshop held on Thursday (13) in preparation for Saturday’s hunt.​​
