Peckover House in Wisbech to host Easter egg hunts for children and adults


Peckover House in Wisbech is hosting a number of Easter egg hunts in April.

Diane Smith, of the National Trust heritage building, said: “The Cadbury Egg Hunt promises to be as much fun as ever, with children searching in the garden for Dulcimer Duck’s lost eggs.

“There will be a chocolate prize at the end of the hunt and all proceeds will go to support the conservation work carried out at Peckover.

“For the first time, however, the fun won’t just be for little ones.

“In early April there will be an egg hunt for adults, a search which leads to the solving of clues and a different chocolate prize.

House manager Ben Rickett said: “We thought it would be nice to extend our egg hunt season a little by involving adults, so until Thursday April 13 the adult egg hunt will be available.

“Then, from Good Friday April 14 to Easter Monday April 17 the Cadbury Egg Hunt for children will take over.”

The adult egg hunt will cost £1.50 per person and the Cadbury Egg Hunt will be £2.50 per child. Both include a Cadbury chocolate prize. Normal admission to the garden is also payable for non National Trust members.
