The dust has settled, the bunny paw prints are fading away from the path and calm has returned to the Parish. It was wonderful to see all ages attempting the games and quizzes together.

The search for the number of crosses in St. Martin’s sparked some earnest debate.  How many are there? Yet still no one knows for sure as you found more than we did! Scroll down for some answers to the other questions…

Eggsploration Guide

Have a great time as you follow the short trail around the village to where the Easter Eggs have been hidden.

Along the way there will be 10 sticker stops to find a letter and collect a sticker. The letters will spell out the Trust’s message to you all. The stickers are peel-able so they can be taken home and used again!

Some of the sticker stops will have a simple activity for you to take part in if you’d like to.

Follow the trail, come with me, write your answers here for all to see.
Find a letter at every sticker stop, the letter E you got from me…

4. A happy group of Chicks are playing hiding games

Can you find out where they are and work out their names?

The chick’s name is at the bottom of their picture, which is hidden around the park. When you find the picture write the chick’s name next to the thing that they have or that they are doing.
