Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Kingcombe Centre is encouraging people to enjoy more than just chocolate this Easter with events that combine fun and families with nature and chocolate! They are urging everyone to discover nature and learn something new in glorious surroundings at this special time of year.
Easter Egg hunt and childrens cookery course
On Easter Monday 9th April from 10.30am - 1pm the Kingcombe Centre is holding an Easter egg hunt in their paddock for the Easter Bunnies which children can then redeem for chocolate eggs. The day is suitable for toddler age and above for just £2 per child. Pre payment is not required but it would help the Easter Bunny if you notified the Centre in advance of your intention to attend.
There is also the chance to put Easter chocolate to good use on the 10th April. From 10am - 2pm there is a cookery course for children with Kingcombe’s Head Chef, themed around chocolate. This is suitable for ages 8-16 at £30 per place. Booking is essential.
Easter is a time to celebrate nature and discover the real birds, wildlife and flowers that have been copied in chocolate
Nick Tomlinson, Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Kingcombe Centre Manager, says: “Easter is a time to celebrate nature and discover the real birds, wildlife and flowers that have been copied in chocolate, and the Kingcombe area is the perfect place to do this. Of course we don’t overlook the sweet side of the season either, being famed as we are for our cakes and flapjacks!”
