Ennerdale Easter Egg Trail
Yesterday we were back at Ennerdale helping out on the annual Easter Egg trail. We were on front of house duties again along with Chris a National Trust volunteer. We get the tents up and are ready for business.
The trail is designed by the National Trust & the event is sponsored by Cadburys
The children follow a route answering questions about the valley & completing activities along the way & then they get an Easter Egg when they finish
The egg obviously was a hit but the duck racing on Smithy Beck & the badge making proved great hits too. We had a record attendance with 121 children & 108 adults completing the course which is up about 10% from last year. We had a beautiful sunny day which helped too.
