Alconbury Weald hosted a special Easter Egg hunt with a twist this year, with nine large Easter eggs hidden around play areas and trails for residents and visitors to find. Each egg held a QR code with a link to a quiz for youngsters and adults to answer.

The Easter egg hunt was a great opportunity for the local community to enjoy the fresh air, explore some of the landscaped spaces in Alconbury Weald and to give their legs and brain a workout.

Those who successfully finished the trail were invited to visit the recently completed community space at the Pavilion to collect an Easter egg and be entered into a prize draw to win an Easter-themed hamper, which was won by the Patton family.

Natalie Leigh-Brown, Community Development for Alconbury Weald, said: “There is a fantastic community spirit at Alconbury Weald and it was great to organise this trail so families and friends could get out and enjoy wandering around the nature trails.

“We’re starting to look at a range of community events and activities as lockdown restrictions lift, and were excited to be able to give people a sneak peek at the recently completed Pavilion when they collected their prizes.”
