Chester families enjoy Easter holiday fun

Families in Chester enjoyed a cracking day out at an Easter egg hunt organised by Sanctuary Housing.

Over 50 people took part in the Easter holiday event at Lache Growing Space, following a trail around the site in search of tasty chocolate treats.

Other activities included den building, organised by The Mersey Forest, and sunflower seed planting, led by staff from Lache Children’s Centre.

The Welcome Network served up healthy fruit kebabs to keep hunger at bay, while the Tesco store in nearby Broughton kindly donated all the eggs for the Easter egg hunt.

Libbie Stock, Sanctuary’s youth engagement officer, said: “It was fantastic to see so many local families making the most of this wonderful community facility and enjoying some healthy outdoor fun in the spring sunshine.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended and all the local residents, volunteers and organisations who helped make the event such a success.”

Lache Growing Space, an allotment site located at the corner of Oxford Road and Burnham Road, offers members of the community the opportunity to grow their own food and is used by local primary schools to teach pupils where food comes from and promote ‘field to fork’.

This event was funded by Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
