Easter egg hunts very popular

Children all across the Coromandel Peninsula were treated to Easter egg hunts over Easter. There is no sign that this tradition is waning.

It was a grand time for the children who participated in the Whitianga clue based hunt.

0ver 200 children arrived at The Informer office over the period of two hours on Easter Saturday afternoon to collect their Easter bag and clue sheet which would lead them to different destinations in the town where their sheets were stamped and they received an Easter treat. Once the children had all squares on their sheet stamped, they raced back to 14 Monk Street for their Easter egg prize. A BIG THANK YOU to PAPER PLUS, HARCOURTS, STIHLO FASHION and HAIR SALON, i SITE, BAYLEYS and WHITIANGA FOOD MARKET for providing Easter eggs and welcoming the children. THANK YOU TO COROMANDEL CFM and iSITE for promoting the hunt to all the families.

Thank you to everyone who organised Easter egg hunts for their community’s children.
