This Saturday we are taking part in a big day of Easter fun organised by Love Ashford and Park Mall and we hope you will be coming out to enjoy the fine spring weather and take part too! Get ready for craft, live music, a spot of gardening, chocolate eggs and of course the Easter bunny himself.
Kicking off from 10am on Saturday, the fun will be spread across four areas of the town including Elwick Place, County Square, Park Mall and the town centre, with activities and exciting freebies for all to enjoy. There will be plenty of fun to be had, plus the council has promised free parking in all council owned car parks for the entire weekend, meaning there’s no reason not to head to town.
Join us and Made in Ashford in Kiosk 2 of Park Mall (just round the corner from Wilkos) from 11am for the chance to decorate your own bunny with all kinds of crafty stuff, and get your face painted with spring themed designs. Olivia from our Kid’s Craft Club will be on hand to help kids get stuck in, so if they like what they get up to here, then why not send them to the Saturday afternoon craft club in the future? It runs fortnightly and costs £7.50 per child, and there’s always plenty of crafty excitement to be had.
Elwick Place will be hosting an event for those with green fingers from 10am with a free seed sowing zone with Ed the Rebel Farmer, alongside fresh fruit and vegetable, and flower stalls, plus live music from Beat the Drum Promotions. Plurenden Manor Farm will also be selling their very fresh milk too.
There will be more live music on the town centre bandstand with Revelations artists Fred Clark Music and Charlie Tophill from 11am – 2pm, and while you’re there, you can take part in the Easter Trail from 11am which will lead you around the town finding letters in shop windows so that you can crack the Easter code and receive a chocolate egg!
Plus the Easter bunny and his friend will be roaming the town between 11am and 2pm, there’s the chance to make an Easter bonnet in County Square in a special workshop from 10.30am onwards. All this plus some amazing weather is forecast for the day, so let’s get out and make the most of it! Happy Easter!
