Roll up to enjoy a great Easter eggstravaganza

VISITORS to a popular park are guaranteed an eggs-cellent time when an annual fun day takes place.

Families are being encouraged to come along to a free fun day at East Carlton Park on Sunday, which will feature a host of games and competitions.

It runs from midday to 4pm and will include an Easter bonnet parade, car boot sale, stalls and games, including egg and spoon races, egg rolling competitions and a paint the best egg competition.

All the money raised on the day will go towards putting on this year’s Corby Carnival.

There will also be a bouncy castle, mini fun fair rides and music from Corby Radio.

Countryside warden Matt Kinnaird said: “Last year it was really well attended because we had a really nice day. It is quite weather-dependent but from what I have seen it is going to be quite nice on Sunday.

“We’ve got the Easter bonnet event which will be judged, an egg and spoon race, various craft stalls and Corby Radio. The money will help Corby Carnival with their event later in the year.”

Terri Meechan, from the Corby Carnival Association, said: “Last year it raised about £400 for us. It is hugely important.

“I love it. It’s great to see all the kids’ faces.”

Corby Council’s lead member for community, Cllr John McGhee, said: “I look forward to seeing many families who are looking forward to doing something more active this Easter holiday and not letting the weather spoil their fun.”

Visitors can set up a table at the car boot sale for £5 or a trade stand for £15. For details call 07907 835721.
