Eggsellent, It's Easter
30th March 2010
... Comments

It doesn't seem like five minutes ago we were tidying up after Christmas, and now I find I'm buying a batch of Easter Eggs in time for this weekend...

Eggs aside, I also need to look for activities to do during the school holidays - and found quite a lot of events and what's on listed online:

Richmond Canoe Club
Easter Sprints
Friday 2nd April

The popular Richmond Easter Sprints will take place, giving a full day's racing for seasonal prizes. A lovely way to spend a day by the river watching other people wear themselves out!

Easter at London Wetland Centre...
Spring is here and it‘s a wonderful time to take the kids on walks amongst golden daffodils and fluffy catkins whilst feeding the birds. Weather permitting see the first chicks hatch of the year. Enjoy a full day of your favourite arts and crafts activities, suitable for children of all ages. The bike trail re-opens for the season. 2nd April 2010 until 18th April 2010
