Egg-tastic Fun
Easter Saturday at the Port Arcades Shopping Centre was all about free fun, bonnets and chocolate! There was of a course a very special visitor who called in to say hello to excited children, who enjoyed having their pictures taken with Easter Bunny.

Hundreds of children and their families joined the Centre’s annual egg hunt, searching high and low in shop window displays to find hidden eggs, with Face painting and glitter tattoos adding to the fun of the day.

The Centre’s Easter bonnet making workshop proved to be a great success, with children designing and making their own creative Easter bonnets before entering one of three parades held during the course of the day. The lucky winners all received Easter eggs, or a play tent kindly donated by Poundstretcher in the Centre.

The winners were Louise Tilling, Sian Byrne, Scarlett and Taylor Martin, Katie Flana, Ruby and Lilly Wholey, Kye Roberts, Leah Challoner and Amy-Lou Astbury.
Michelle Pickstock from the Port Arcades Shopping Centre said, “We love the fun and excitement of Easter each year here in the Centre.”
