Knutsford town centre is getting ready to host its annual Bunny Hop, to celebrate Easter and all things chocolate. Saturday April 20th will see families scouring Knutsford in search of the 9 bunnies hidden in the town centre streets.
Each family will have a postcard and when they find the bunnies, they write the bunny’s letter and the name of the shop it was found near, before re-arranging the letters to find a phrase associated with Easter.
When finished they can post it into the Heritage Centre’s post box. Postcards have been delivered to local schools, pre-schools and nurseries and will be available on the day from participating shops, restaurants and cafes.
The event is co-ordinated by Knutsford Town Council with sponsorship from Bella Marketing and Design, Mere Day Nursery, Little Waitrose and Mr Simms. Many of the town centre’s shops and businesses join in the fun. Chocolates, books and balloons are some of the treats handed out.
Becki Gilhooley of Mere Day Nursery, said, “This is the first time we have got involved with a community event and we can’t wait! It will be lovely to see families, many of whom have children at our nursery, in their own environment and we are planning to have a little pop-up opposite Mr Simms with cupcakes and balloons.”
Hannah Dale, partner at Little Waitrose, said, “We were sponsors last year and really enjoyed the day. All the partners at the shop are looking forward to joining in the bunny-themed fun with crafts and treats for the little ones.”
All entries are entered a prize draw and the prizes on offer so far include an Easter Hamper from Mr Simms; some toys from Hal Whittaker, a voucher from Giovanni’s, Easter eggs from Chafe Hague Lambert Solicitors, a voucher for children’s clothes from Lou Lou Bella Boutique and the children’s book Leo’s Ladder.
