The lucky winner of Congleton Town Council’s ‘Hop Around the Shops’ trail was 9-year-old Ella Fairbrother from Congleton. Ella collected all 37 letters and spelt out the mystery word – Dragons & Jousters, Congleton Park. As part of the towns 750th Charter year celebrations, the town council are organising a free entry Medieval Festival Day on Saturday 13 August in the park. Save the date!
The popular Easter trail was supported by 37 town centre traders. The council received over 200 completed hunt forms with even more chocolate treats handed out, kindly sponsored by Tesco, Barn Road.
An egg-cellent day was had by hundreds of people who joined in the holiday fun on Tuesday 5 April. Rachel McCarthy, Congleton Town Council’s Town Centre and Events Officer said: “We were delighted with the turn out in the town centre, this is egg-sactly what we like to see! Everyone seemed to be smiling and having a cracking time. In particular the children from The Nursery, Congleton.
Samantha Greer, Owner/Manager of The Nursery, said: “It was great to have the opportunity to support our town and attend the Easter Event. The children had fun feeding the Glebe Farm goats and petting the lambs! We got to plant giant sunflower seeds and brought some wooden eggs back to nursery for us to decorate. We also had to find letters in the shop windows! What a lovely time we had. Thank you to Congleton Town Council for organising such a brilliant event.”
Congleton Town Council would like to thank the following who gave up their time on the day: Glebe Farm, Patti from In Bloom, Woodland Trust, Elizabeth Group, Chris Booth & all the volunteers and lastly but not least the residents and visitors to Congleton who came and supported the event.
