The activity encourages people to explore the town and discover Easter-themed soft toys which have been hidden around the town centre in over 20 local participating businesses.

Councillor Jane Sartin, chairman of Hertford Town Council’s development and leisure committee, said: “Easter bunnies will be hopping right across Hertford town centre, waiting to be discovered.

"Hertford Town Council’s town centre trails are always a popular activity, and it’s good to have the involvement again of so many local businesses who are hosting the Easter bunnies.”
