Once again, the lavender field echoed to the delighted shrieks of children taking part in the Friends of Vauxhall Park’s Easter Egg Hunt. Louise Norwood and her team at the Oval Montessori Nursery School, who mastermind this event, ensured that all 150 children who came to join in the hunt left with a big smile on their face and a chocolate egg. The ‘hiders’ of the eggs were amused to find that one of the clear plastic eggs that the children find to be able to claim one of the chocolate variety, was adopted by a pigeon who decided to try to incubate it! Two children in particular had an even better reason to smile when they won one of the two enormous Easter Eggs that were prizes in the raffle. Thank you Louise for giving so much pleasure to so many and thank you to the weather reports for wrongly predicting a thunderstorm for our event – we basked in sunshine!
