Easter fun with the bunny THE Easter Bunny has been seen in the local area, hopping from place to place and dishing out chocolate. At Harpur’s in Melbourne, Bunny himself turned up to join in the Easter festivities over breakfast. He arrived with Easter eggs for all and joined in with all the singing, dancing, colouring and decorating – organised by Tracey Ridley from Music Time for Harpur’s. Graham Townend, of Harpur’s, said: “Tracey is well known around Melbourne and helped to sell out the event once again this year! She entertained the kids all morning, making sure they had a great time and were all very hoppy! “Breakfast/Brunch with the Easter Bunny is one of Harpur’s annual events which al-

ways gets sold out very early.” Over at Melbourne Hall, families from the local area turned out to meet Mr (or Mrs) Bunny who helped them with kids’ activities including a colouring competition and tombola. It was a spring-like atmosphere with newborn lambs making a public appearance too. Nicki Coombes, of Millpond Antiques, said lots of people had gone down the hall to enjoy the festivities: “This is something from the tenants to say thank you for their support –

to give back to the community.” Meanwhile, at Tori & Ben’s Farm Shop in Kings Newton, there was a whole festival of Easter-themed fun from April 18 to 20, including Easter egg hunt, bouncy castle, giant sandpit, craft activities, egg painting, ice cream, children’s games and face painting. Tori Stanley said: “It was a huge success, a big effort from our fabulous team but the support of the local community and bright sunshine enabled us to have a fabulous Easter weekend.”
