Egg-citement At Chawley’s Easter Event
Chawley Grove’s garden turned into an Easter Egg hunting ground this April as local children went searching for treats.
On Wednesday 13th April, families arrived at the home for a chocolate eggstravaganza, but you had to be in it to win it.
Team Chawley had hidden plastic multicoloured eggs all around the grounds, and each child needed to find five to win a prize.
Tesco Community Champion Ryan Newman donated delicious Easter eggs from Chawley Grove’s local supermarket for the kids to win.
Residents cheered them on as they searched, knowing that one special golden egg was hidden amongst the foliage.
According to Regional Community Relations Lead Mark Laundy, it was a terrific afternoon.
Mark said: “We were thrilled to welcome the children to our Easter Egg hunt – and congratulations to Milo for finding the golden egg.
“Everyone was able to claim their prize, so big thanks to Tesco for donating them.
“Milo’s golden egg meant he got to take home our star prize teddy, which was lovely.”
Residents were delighted to welcome the families to Chawley for the first time in a while.
Several residents went into the garden to cheer the children on, while others waved out of their windows.
Later, parents enjoyed cupcakes and beverages in the café area while the children cooed at the newly hatched ducklings that Chawley have in the home.
Mark said: “The weather was our friend and the afternoon stayed dry and sunny for the whole Easter egg hunt.
“The heavens opened afterwards, but thankfully we were enjoying warm drinks and cakes by then.
“We are looking forward to having more fun-filled events for our community this summer.”
