The ever-popular Easter Egg Hunt at the National Trust’s Peckover House in Wisbech will have a definite new flavour this year.

As children explore the spring garden at the Georgian townhouse on North Brink to search for clues, they will be learning about traditional Easter cookery.

“We like to give the Easter Egg Hunt a different theme each year,’ said Diane Smith, the event’s organiser.

“So this time the clues will all be based on a food theme.

“Cadbury are kindly sponsoring the National Trust event again this year, so there will be a chocolate prize at the end of the trail for each child.”

The Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt will be available in the garden for four days over Easter – from Friday, March 25, to Monday, March 28, 11am to 4pm each day.

The cost per child is £2.50, plus normal garden admission for non-National Trust members.
