Plans are coming together for the free family Easter Celebration event at the Holbeach Hub next month.

The whole day is being paid for by the Lottery Celebrate fund and takes place at the Boston Road hub on Easter Saturday, April 15, 10am to 4pm.

Free workshops will be running throughout the day, including making a felt 
chicken, mosaics, pot painting and cooking.

Ark Farm will bring along sheep, lambs and smaller animals such as rabbits and there will also be a play and egg hunt area.

And there will be seating available so you can sample items from the free buffet while enjoying the day.

There is also going to be the opportunity to speak to some of Holbeach’s local groups, such as Holbeach Rotary, Holbeach Cemetery Chapels Trust and the Holbeach WI.

And you can help the fundraising efforts of other groups, such as the Scouts, Little Miracles, Air Cadets and the youth football teams, by entering their raffles and tombolas.

There will be free facepainting and some fantastic balloon art and origami 
performers. School choirs will also be singing on the day.

A number of Holbeach shops will also be running special offers on April 15. And, in the week leading up to the event, there will be a competition where special eggs will be hidden in a selection of shops in the town.

To enter, pop into town and count the eggs that you find in the shops and bring your answer to the event. There will also be drawing and cake decorating competitions on the day. More competition details will follow in future editions of the Guardian.

Organiser Coun Tracey Carter said: “I am thrilled at how many different groups we have involved and there is something for all ages.”

If anyone wants to be involved in the day, by either 
being a steward, or by providing an item for the buffet table or raffle then Tracey would love to hear from you on 07719189528 or tcarter@sholland.gov.uk
