Children and families from Sidmouth will have a hop in their step over the school holidays as they go in search for hidden Easter bunnies around the town.

Nine bunnies have been hidden in shop windows around the town and the Sidmouth Primary School PTFA are inviting children to enter the bunny hunt competition with the first 100 entries each receiving a mini chocolate treat. The winning entrant will land themselves a treasure chest of treats with a hamper of chocolate goodies as the top prize.

Natasha Morgan, vice chair of the PTFA, said: “Are you looking for a fun activity to do with your children or grandchildren over the Easter Holidays? Bunnies have been placed in the windows of some of the lovely shops and cafes in the town centre, and you need to find them!”

Entry sheets can be collected and returned to The Dairy Shop on Church Street by Friday, April 16 with a minimum suggested £1 donation per entry. The first 100 entries will receive a mini chocolate treat, and all completed entries will be in with the chance of winning the fabulous chocolate hamper. 
If you would like to receive a bunny hunt entry sheet by email, or want to know more about the school’s fundraising, contact the committee at: PTFA@sidmouth-primary.devon.sch.uk

All money raised from the Easter bunny hunt will go towards new playground equipment at the Woolbrook Road school site.
