Hundreds of children and their families celebrated the changing of the season at a messy fun workshop in Lynn last week.

Visitors to the Vancouver Quarter took advantage of the special free spring-themed event on Thursday, and made some Easter-based crafts.

The activity, which was situated opposite Wilko on New Conduit Street, saw youngsters create decorated butterflies before planting sunflower seeds during the drop-in workshop, which ran from 10am to 3pm.

Centre manager Abbie Panks said: “We’ve had some excellent feedback from parents who brought their children along and clearly this event was a big hit with families.

“It was wonderful to see so many children having fun and getting crafty and we’re looking forward to families sharing pictures of their sunflowers growing, too.”

The Easter-themed activities do not stop there, as on Thursday this week, there will be an Easter bonnets and baskets workshop with four sessions at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm.

The baskets and bonnets will come in very useful for the Vancouver Quarter’s Easter Egg Trail which will be held on Saturday, April 15.

Fifteen giant Easter eggs, each displaying something unique, will be hidden around the town, and all families need to do is find them between 1pm and 5pm, mark them on the map provided and return it to the Vancouver Quarter for the chance to win £250 of shopping vouchers.

Anyone who manages to find 10 or more eggs will also receive an Easter treat.

These are just some of the Vancouver Quarter’s free events planned, with more festivities on the cards this year.
