Over a hundred children descended on Plymbridge Woods to take part in the National Trust’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. This year the trail was set along the old canal tow-path and the finish was at Carpenter’s Meadow. After the children completed the trail and collected their Cadbury’s chocolate egg, we had lots of activities for them to enjoy.
Easter Bonnet making (pictured) proved very popular; as did the Bumble-bee game, created by Plym Valley’s volunteers.
The event was combined with the Plym Valley Peregrine project’s 10th birthday celebrations. At the peregrine stall, children made bird-feeders using empty milk bottles and we had to bring in an additional bag of bottles to meet the high demand! Plym Valley’s bird expert, John Randall, led some free guided walks and the viaduct received over 500 visitors, all keen for a glimpse of a peregrine through one of the project’s telescopes.

Well done to all the volunteers and staff who made the day such a success!
