Newquay Business Improvement District (BID), working in partnership with the Newquay Voice and Newquay Trenance Learning Academy is inviting children, and not so grown up adults, to come and take part in a recycled Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza over the Easter holiday period.
The egg hunt will take place between Saturday 5th and Sunday 20th April. Following a map and set of clues, participants will need to navigate their way from Cliff Road to Fore Street to locate the 12 eggs hidden in businesses throughout the town. Once they have located each hidden egg they can collect a special stamp from each place to add to their map.
At the end of the trail, participants are encouraged to hand in their completed map to the Tourist Information Centre to claim their Easter themed sticker and special Easter treat. Parents of children who took part will also be given a raffle ticket which enters them into a draw which takes place on Sunday 20th April to win prizes generously donated by local businesses.
The eggs have all been created by local children and parents from Newquay Trenance Learning Academy who crafted papier-mâché Easter egg master pieces using recycled copies of the Newquay Voice. The colourful and eye catching eggs are being hidden in a number of BID businesses throughout the town centre.
Alice Beard Newquay BID Marketing and PR Assistant says: “The Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza is a great free activity for families to take part in this Easter. The BID is certain that with the added incentives of stickers and chocolate, we’ll have lots of eager participants visiting the town centre during the holiday period. Stamps don’t have to be collected all in one go and we’re encouraging people to make multiple visits into town during the fortnight.
“We were delighted to work with the wonderful Trenance Learning Academy once again on this and it has also been fantastic to have local graduate Roxi Foster helping to lead on this project. Her assistance has been invaluable in contacting local businesses and coming up with many of the creative ideas. We would also like to thank the Newquay Voice for supporting the scheme and donating recycled copies of the paper to make the eggs.”
Maps will be available to pick up from numerous sites across town including the Tourist Information Centre and local businesses. If you would like more information on the Easter Egg Hunt please contact the Newquay BID on 01637 498599 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
