Popular residents group ACORN took full advantage of the brilliant West Park and the unique Easter Monday sunshine to engage in its annual Easter Egg hunt with members of their junior section Little Acorns.
This event is hugely enjoyed by children and adults alike as they hunt for hidden plastic eggs to exchange for cream eggs and take part in traditional games such as the sack race, egg and spoon race, skipping race and running.
Little Acorns are currently busy bees as they are involved in the planning for the fantastic ACORN annual Petting Zoo which will be held at the Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre on Saturday 27th April between 10am and 2pm.
The Petting Zoo features 3 separate petting zoos with creatures varying from hamsters and rabbits to reptiles and snakes, bouncy castle, face painting, glitter tattoos, Jet and Ben, Spotty Dog, Professor Nincompoop and a host of other attractions all under one roof. A great event with something for the whole family. Many local charities and good causes will also be attending and activities such as Tombola and cake stalls. Come on down for a great event.
ACORN is also planning a day trip to Scarborough on Saturday 11th May 2019, seats are available at £5.00 person.
