The Easter Holidays brought plenty of fun activities to our parks with lots of competitions and egg hunts taking place across the county!
At Goosewood Holiday Park, there was an Easter Egg hunt which took place around the park, an Easter Bonnet competition and a boiled egg decorating competition. The decorating competition was won by Maisie who’s ‘Egg Mermaid’ in a fishbowl took the first prize, while there was also an egg decorated as one of our park managers, Mike!
Over towards the Yorkshire Dales in Ripon, they had the Little Rascals entertainment company providing day time entertainment for the kids. They had a visit from the Easter Bunny and an Easter Bonnet Parade, both of which were super popular! The 1st prize for the Bonnet competition was also a Thornton’s Chocolate Trophy which was won by Molly, while Sarah Jane was the closest to guessing how many eggs the chicken had laid.
There was also a raffle held which was won by one of our holidaymakers who had brought their tourer along to holiday with us – winning an Easter Hamper. While 2nd prize went to one of Riverside Meadows’ seasonal tourers and they won a Humpty Dumpty cake which was made by Cath who works in the bar.
Over on the East Coast, at the Lighthouse Holiday Park, new park managers Vanessa and John organised an Easter Egg Hunt around the park, where 45 children and their parents hunted out eggs from clues, with everyone winning a Cadbury’s Cream Egg for their efforts. There were also 3 winners drawn at random from all those who took part, with those lucky winners taking home a big Easter egg.
Running alongside the Easter Egg Hunt was a colouring competition. 1st prize was won by Lorna who won a bunny hand puppet and a large Easter egg. 2nd prize was won by Amy and 3rd place went to a young man who took his picture home, both winning a large Easter egg, while everyone who took part won a bag of sweets.
Further down the coast, at Lowcroft Leisure Park in Hornsea, over 40 children took on the Easter Egg Hunt here after enjoying some games beforehand. Stuart Marsden was the lucky winner of the Easter raffle, and David Hill won £100 on the Lottery Bonus Ball card with number 48.
There was also a Grand National Sweepstake which was won by Linda Warren who drew One for Arthur.
All that, plus a £100 donation from an anonymous owner on the park, means there is £400 in the charity donation pot already at Lowcroft!
At the Flower of May in Scarborough, there were lots of kids who found the Easter Eggs hidden around the park, while the Easter Bunny was busy making a guest appearance at Flower of May too!
All together, there was lots of fun had over the Easter weekend!
