Families hopped to Lace Hill Sports & Community Centre on Sunday 10th April and enjoyed an early Easter treat. The event featured an egg trail hunt, bouncy castle, face painting refreshments and plenty of children’s craft activities.
The craft fair included local businesses selling their wares, from crystal wire wrapped jewellery, to pet portraits, sell-out fresh bakes and bespoke hand-picked seasonal hampers by a young enterprise (Bycell Hampers) from Akeley Wood School sixth form students.
Children jumped like bunnies on the bouncy castle and with a little help from the grown-ups, everyone had fun completing the egg hunt trail and solving the puzzle! Children were also encouraged to design their own Easter crown for a chance to win a chocolate egg hamper. With help from the Mayor of Buckingham, three winners have been chosen and will receive their prizes in time for Easter Sunday.
We believe events like this are important to bring the community together and would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who joined us, including all the stall holders, the craft room volunteer and to the hirers at Lace Hill Sports & Community Centre who donated the chocolate egg prizes for the children.
Cllr. Robin Stuchbury, Chair of the Town Centre and Events Committee said – “It was brilliant seeing so many young people clearly enjoying themselves. They and their parents, all in our community centre on a Sunday, having a great time! We have a number of events through the summer aimed at the same age group including the Lace Hill Family Funday on the 17th July and Play around the Parishes on the 26th July, 17th and 22nd August.”
