THERE was hunting, hats and crafts at Tidworth’s fifth Easter event last weekend.

Children and adults alike joined in the springtime fun at the community centre on Saturday afternoon.

Wiltshire Wildlife Trust (WWT) showed children how to reuse rubbish and turn it in to Easter crowns and rooster egg holders while other crafts included drawing and glass colouring.

Outside, youngsters hunted eggs in the community centre grounds and a winner of the Easter hat competition was crowned.

Gemma Annan from WWT said: “The event was well attended and everyone was in good spirits.

“The activities were a big hit and it was nice to see the children enjoying making crafts out of junk that may otherwise end up in the bin.

"Activities like this will help to encourage local residents to reuse and recycle their junk.”

Mayor of Tidworth Town Council Cllr Mark Connolly, who also joined in the fun, said: “This was the most successful Easter event so far. So many children and families having fun on the Easter egg hunt and then making crowns and animals from recycled materials as well as other craft activities.

“It is one of several free events the council provides for the community with the festival in July being the next event.

“Our thanks go to Reverend Annabel Copeland and Holy Trinity Church for participating and providing craft materials and to Tesco for donating money towards the eggs for the Easter hunt.”
