There will be Easter fun for all the family in Gisborough Priory Woodland Gardens between 1pm and 3.30pm on Easter Monday, 9 April.
Visitors, young and old, can choose from two treasure hunts that will take them all over the gardens in their search for the secret signs. There will be small chocolate egg prizes for all successful treasure hunters!
There will also be some Easter crafts to try, all materials provided. Visitors may make their own Easter bonnet or disguise themselves as an Easter bunny, chick or lamb with their own hand decorated mask.
The newly created storytelling area, with its rustic storytelling chair set in a tree-shaded spot, will be used for the first time for seasonal stories read by one of the Gisborough Priory Project volunteers.
The gardens are looking wonderful with many spring flowers in bloom and the trees in bud so it is a great time to explore and enjoy them. There are plenty of picnic tables and benches around the gardens to sit and take in the springtime scene.
As usual, delicious tea and cakes can be purchased from the volunteers with all income going towards the work in the gardens. Information giving details of the ongoing work in the gardens will be available.
Thanks to Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council there will be free entry to the gardens through the Gisborough Priory entrance on Church Street between 1pm and 3.30pm. Alternatively, visitors may enter through the gate at the end of the Bow Street Centre car park.
Gisborough Priory Project volunteer, Judith Arber, said, “There will be lots to do and lots to see so we’re hoping plenty of people will come along and enjoy an afternoon in the gardens.”
