Easter Saturday (20th April) at the Port Arcades Shopping Centre was all about free fun, Easter songs, bonnets and chocolate. There was of a course a very special visitor who hopped in to say hello to many excited children, who enjoyed having their pictures taken with Easter Bunny.
Hundreds of children and their families joined the Centre’s annual egg hunt, searching high and low in shop window displays to find hidden eggs. All participants were rewarded with a Cadbury Cream Egg and entered into a prize draw to win one of two tempting chocolate hampers. Face painting, provided by Party Faces, added to the fun of the day. Whilst Ellesmere Port Churches Together entertained crowds singing Easter hymns.
The Centre’s Easter bonnet decorating workshop proved to be a great success, as children creatively designed and decorated their own Easter themed bonnets.
Michelle Pickstock from the Port Arcades Shopping Centre said, “We love the fun and excitement of Easter each year here in the Centre. The younger children especially love to meet Easter Bunny.” A full range of photos from the day can be seen at www.facebook.com/portarcades
