LETTER OF THE DAY: It’s time to end horse racing carnage

Have your say

It wouldn’t be Easter without traipsing round searching for eggs.

No, we’re not talking about parents’ search for the latest cool, character-themed chocolate eggs in the supermarket. We mean families getting out and about over the holiday on an Easter egg hunt.

Whether it’s chocolate eggs, real eggs painted or pictures of eggs, and whether they’re hidden at home, in the garden, or at a local attraction, Easter egg hunts are lots of fun for everyone.

For those who don’t want to brave the wintry weather, the Spinnaker Tower is holding a ginormous Easter egg hunt, to match its own gigantic proportions.

Enormous but elusive eggs have been hidden around the 170 metre-high viewing tower and, from today until Sunday, April 14, visitors are challenged to discover them for a chance to win a delicious seasonal prize.

The tower at Gunwharf Quays is open daily from 10am to 6pm and is also launching its new iVIEW interactive touch screens today, which help visitors interpret the views.

Meanwhile, Port Solent is holding a free egg hunt on Sunday.

Alice and the White Rabbit will be on hand to help families hunt for clues to win a chocolate egg from 11am to 2pm.

And Kidsroam petting farm will be there too, offering kids the chance to get hands on with all kinds of creatures.

But there are more creatures than you can shake your eggs at down at Staunton Country Park, Havant.

There, on Sunday, the Easter bunny will be presiding over an exciting egg hunt from 10am as part of their Easter Extravaganza, which also features trails, encounters and crafts.

Over at Fishbourne Roman Palace near Chichester, there’s a rabbit hunt in the Roman gardens throughout the holidays.

Roamin’ Rabbits have been hidden around the Palace grounds. Each has a letter and visitors must solve an anagram to win a prize.

There are also Roman craft and learning activities.

Finally, Sparsholt College, near Winchester, is not only holding an egg hunt, but visitors should keep their eyes peeled for real eggs hatching too.

From today until Monday, 9.30am to 4pm, families can meet the Easter bunny and the newly-hatched chicks, enjoy an Easter egg hunt and take part in craft and learning activities based around the many and varied animals at the college.
