Easter trails and activities 2021

From March 29th The rule of 6 will apply just in time for Easter, 
  • you will be able to meet outdoors in a group of 6 (from any number of households), OR in a group of any size from up to 2 households (each household can include existing support bubbles, if eligible)
  • you will be able to take part informally organised outdoor sports with any number of people (outdoor sports venues and facilities will be able to reopen)
  • childcare and supervised activities will be allowed outdoors for all children
  • formally organised parent and child groups will be able to take place outdoors for up to 15 attendees. Children under 5 will not be not counted in this number

If you are looking for things to do with the kids some attractions and charities have organized activities for you to enjoy. Be safe!

Egg hunt and National trust

The National Trust has announced it is pulling its annual Easter egg hunt from next year after ending its long-running partnership with Cadbury. The trust says the decision between the two brands was mutual and was born out of it wanting to focus on “nature” and make chocolate “less of a focus” from 2021. Source "The Independent"
