Easter Sunday is only a week and a half away.
The children have already broken up for the holidays (we feel for you poor parents, we really do...), chocolate eggs of all shapes and sizes have been adorning the supermarket shelves since New Year's Day and we're all looking forward to a well-deserved four days off.
For some, Easter is a deeply religious time. For others it's an opportunity to meet up with family and stuff ourselves with a Sunday roast and Cadbury's chocolate (other chocolate brands are available!), must like a mini-replay of Christmas Day.
But with the weather warming up, why not get out and about in Watford this Easter and take part in the themed activities and events planned?
