Thurcroft Big Local – Easter Fun!

By Rachel Cole, Senior Projects Officer

Lots of fun was had by Thurcroft residents at the Easter event on Good Friday.  The event started with arts and crafts in the Church followed by an Easter Egg hunt around the village.  Clues were put on the street names of 24 streets and the children had to find these before finishing at the Miners Institute where they all received an Easter Egg. Over 100 children took part in the Easter Egg hunt along with their families. The day finished with a Punch & Judy show and a magic act from Magic John. Magic John then make a balloon model for each child to take away. The weekend was complete with an Easter Bonnet competition and a disco on Easter Monday. A great Easter weekend for all the community.
