Cream teas at the Easter Hunt

Easter Treasure Hunt A Great Success

What a lovely day we had on Saturday 8th April when, in collaboration with Delamere Park Ladies Group and volunteers from across the Park we ran our first ever Easter Treasure Hunt.

The hunt was picture based and gave local families a chance to follow clues around the whole of Delamere Park, exploring the nooks and crannies of our lovely estate, ending back at the Park Room to receive a chocolate treat.

The Delamere Park ladies club did a spectacular job providing cream teas and refreshments open to all visitors for the afternoon, and we were so grateful to everyone who collectively baked a delicious array of cakes and scones.

Our committee made sure the park room looked beautiful with the delightful vintage decor and original floral centrepieces for the tables. Alongside this we had our ‘pre-loved’ toy stall – and our children’s Easter Crafts table – both of which proved very popular.

Luckily, we happened to select the sunniest, warmest day of the year which made the day even more special, and it was great to see the children playing out of the brand new play area, just unveiled by Delamere Park.

We would like again to thank everyone who worked with us to make the day such a huge success, and such a lovely community event.

We would also like to thank everyone who came along and joined the fun. What made the event so special was seeing the mix of ages coming together and enjoying themselves. 

In total we had 75 children take part in the treasure hunt, and a very busy afternoon of eating, drinking and enjoyment in the Park Room. 

We look forward to more family events like this on the park in the near future!
