There’s an egg-cellent treat in store for Hatfield residents next month, with the launch of the town centre Easter egg hunt.

Running between April 3 and April 21, participating shops are concealing eggs in their aisles that children will have to find.

Children then have to write down the name of each one alongside the shop on an activity card – these can be picked up from The Hub and participating shops.

They will also get colouring activities and an Easter story.

To be in with a chance of winning, children just need to submit their completed entry into the drop off point at The Hub.

Councillor Bernard Sarson said: “After the popularity of last year’s event we’re very pleased that the Easter egg hunt is back for a second year, with even more local retailers supporting the event this time around.

“It’s a great excuse for the whole family to visit the town centre, giving children the chance to do something fun whilst parents and guardians can do some shopping.”

The winner will be announced on Wednesday, April 26, and will receive a year’s season ticket for one adult and one child to Hatfield Park Farm at Hatfield House.

There are also prizes for children who come second and third, who will receive VIP tickets for CW Entertainment in Welwyn Garden City.
