Cadburys Easter Egg Hunts with the National Trust 2016

It’s almost Easter weekend.  How exciting!!!  Have you all made plans yet?  We will be having a lovely dinner with family and probably doing our own mini Easter egg hunt which should be exciting for the children.  I plan on making a cake I have never made before which I am rather excited about for us to enjoy on Easter Sunday although don’t ask me what yet as I haven’t a clue (mild panic has begun to set in).  I have also looked at the National Trust site as last year they partnered with Cadburys and hosted a range of Easter egg hunts over the Easter weekend, with 271 properties taking part throughout the UK and I heard that they are doing the same again this year so I wanted to see what locations near to me we going to get involved.  Whilst doing a little research I discovered that this is their ninth year of hunts and that to celebrate they had revealed a show-stopping eight foot topiary Easter Bunny at their Stourhead location, with a further seven four foot versions available for prime photo opportunities at Wimpole, Stowe, Killerton, Castle Ward, Fountains Abbey, Hardwick Hall and Tredegar House.  They have also hidden 362,592 Dairy Milk Bunnies at participating properties, who wants chocolate???  Want to get involved?  You can find their nearest Egg Hunt by visiting Cadbury.co.uk/Easter http://easter.cadbury.co.uk/

National Trust unveils show-stopping giant topiary Easter BunnyWith over 270,000 people getting involved in a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt last year, and over 3 million people welcomed to participating National Trust places over the Easter weekend, the charity is hoping for another great turnout.

About the National Trust

 The National Trust is a conservation charity that was founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces, and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. More than 120 years later, these values are still at the heart of everything the charity does.

 Entirely independent of Government, the National Trust looks after more than over 600,00 acres of countryside, 775 miles of coastline and hundreds of special places across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

 Over 20 million people visit every year, and together with 4.5 million members and over 62,000 volunteers, they help to support the charity in its’ work to care for special places forever, for everyone.
