A CRACKING time is being put on by the Peasholm Park Friends to help mark its 100th birthday.

The group is inviting everyone to an Easter Eggstravaganza, the first of many events planned this year.

The event starts at noon on Easter Sunday April 8.

l Among the activies are: Easter basket making; hunt the chick; Egg decorating – bring an egg or two to decorate; egg rolling contests and an Easter bonnet competition – bring your fancy hat to win a prize.

There will be a small charge to take part in the above activities and the friends will also be selling Easter cakes and hand-made gifts with all proceeds going towards promoting more events and activities at the park during this anniversary year.

Linda Harper, from the Peasholm Park Friends said: “This is a wonderful event to start off the Peasholm Park Centenary celebrations and it is the second year we have organised an Easter event.

“Last year proved very popular and it is always encouraging to see so many families taking part in activities and enjoying the scenery and variety that the park offers.”

Other special events planned for the spring and summer Peasholm Centenary celebrations include a Diamond Jubilee Big Picnic, Norwegian Marching Bands, Evening Shadows in the Park, The Three Tenors and Swing in the Park.
