Get egg-cited about Easter egg trail in Wickham

Children visiting Wickham from Friday March 30 to Sunday April 15 will be treated to a special Easter Egg trail which will take them around the sites of the village and nearby countryside.

 

Families can explore the trail which will take in several of the local shops while also teaching children about the rich history of the village.

 

Organised by Winchester City Council the activity is being offered for free during the Easter holidays. Participants must find the hidden eggs, note down their numbers on a trail sheet and do some maths to reach the all important “magic number”. If they get it right, they will earn themselves a chocolate prize from Wickham’s chocolate shop, Confiserie Verdonk.

 

Also prior to the  trail there was an Easter Egg art competition which involved children from Curdridge Primary School and Wickham Primary School.

 

It is hoped hundreds of children and families will take part this year and the trail sheets, which have a number of interesting tasks around the village at various locations, will be distributed at the start at Station Close Car Park.

 

Kate Cloud, head of Economy and Arts at Winchester City Council said:

 

“The trail is one of many ways that the Council economically supports Wickham and Denmead to ensure they continue to be vibrant places which are enjoyed by visitors and residents alike.”
