Royston Easter Trail

The Easter Trail is coming!

Even in these difficult circumstances here at Royston First we are determined to run an event for the local children over the Easter holidays.

This year we are doing a “Bunny Trail” – with a bit of a difference!

We thought it would be a fun idea for the residents of Royston to craft some bunnies to use on the trail. The bunnies can be crafted in any way, from clay to crochet.

Anyone of any age can be creative and join in the fun!

Once you’ve created your bunny, send us a photo and we will pick a selection to display in the shop windows in Royton High Street for the Easter bunny trail.

All the information are in the Ts&Cs but the main requirement is for the bunnies to be no bigger than 30cm squared… other than that – craft away!

We are really looking forward to seeing lots of different creations. Please email photos with your name, contact details and your age if you are under 12 years old to info@roystonfirst.com.

Don’t forget to shop local when you are looking for your craft supplies!

If you would like to make your very own bunny but need some inspiration here are some ideas that we’ve found.
