Activities and Trails 

  • From the 27th March we are delighted to announce that our little town will once again be yarn bombed. With a farmyard theme

The trail is aimed at children to enjoy with their families and runs from Saturday 27th March until Saturday 10th April.

Knitted Farm Characters will be hiding in shop windows around the town centre and includes chickens, tractors, turkeys and even a farm with a farmer (see photographs).

To take part in the trail, families should visit Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre, in The Wash opposite Hertford Theatre, to pick up a trail map from the leaflet holder. Or you can download a PDF version here. 

The trail promised to provide a captivating challenge that combined mind-twisting clues and fascinating stories for anyone with a sense of adventure, the trail would take us exploring through our very own town and promised to be great for familes and therefore ticked all the boxes. You can read all about our experience here. 

We would throughly recommend this trail for the Easter holidays!

  • Geocaching- is also a fantastic free socially distance activity that can be done locally during Easter. More information here- its always a winner with my boys.

Sport and leisure

  • Chadwell springs are due to reopen on the 29th March  offering pitch and putt and footgolf for families.

Out and About - local walks

  • Easter bonnet Parade

Make an Easter Bonnet at home with whatever you have laying around the house and have a parade through the house.

  • Make some Hot cross buns!

We've found a no yeast recipe so if you would like some tasty hot cross buns this year and have self raising flour and yogurt you can find the recipe here: 

Check out our instagram reels and stories for more Easter baking ideas.

  • Decorate some eggs 

If you are lucky enough to have some eggs in the children could use them to decorate. In order not to waste food, you could make a small hole in the bottom of the egg and drain the egg out first which you can then use for cooking. Lots of fun.

Easter arts and craft activities-

 The Mill house recently published some great ideas for Easter arts and Crafts using toilet rolls including the below which we thought were fabulour.

There's also a range of Easter pintables here .

Wishing you a wonderful Easter

Lots of Love
