Eco Easter Egg-stravaganza
On Saturday 31st March, The Broadwalk Centre in Edgware will be hosting a special Eco Easter Egg-stravaganza event and is inviting local residents and their families to take part.
From 12pm until 4pm little shoppers can take part in the centre’s free nature trail which will see them hunt around the centre for hidden clues. Once all eight have been spotted, children can then return their completed entry form to The Broadwalk’s promotional team to receive an Easter goodie.
Furthermore, a Build-a-Bug-House workshop will be taking place throughout the day as part of the centre’s ongoing ‘Love Your World’ campaign. Using only recycled materials, youngsters will be shown how to make their very own bug house, ahead of the spring season.
A free face painter will also be on hand to get children into the Easter spirit by turning them into their favourite Easter characters including farmyard animals, beautiful butterflies, or spring flowers.
Angela Brooks, Centre Manager of The Broadwalk Centre, commented, “Safe hideaways can be hard for wildlife to find, especially in city gardens, which is why as we move into spring we wanted to provide a fun event to inspire the younger generation to take care of caring for our environment. I look forward to seeing as many local families as possible taking part in our nature trail and free workshop.”
