There will be Easter fun for all the family in Gisborough Priory Woodland Gardens between 1pm and 3.30pm on Easter Monday, 1 April.
Visitors, young and old, can follow an Easter egg trail that will take them all over the gardens. There are small chocolate eggs for anyone who manages to complete the trail!
There will also be 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.
Seasonal stories will be told in the magical, woodland storytelling area by one of the Gisborough Priory Project volunteers.
With spring flowers beginning to bloom and the trees in bud it is a lovely time to explore and enjoy the gardens. There are plenty of picnic tables and benches around the gardens to sit and take in the springtime scene, including a newly installed hexagonal bench around the beautiful beech tree.
As usual, delicious tea and homemade 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.”
