Is It Easter Yet?

It seems like a long time coming; however, Easter and that fantastic long bank holiday are just a few weeks away. The advantage to Easter falling so late is that everything feels lighter and brighter and we’re slightly more confident in making “outdoor” plans for the Easter weekend. We shouldn’t complain as it’s been a mild winter, but fingers crossed we’ve seen the last of the snow!

There are some lovely events going on across the island this Easter and throughout the month of April as a whole.

A trip to Plas Newydd House & Gardens is a must. The National Trust owned estate run great events throughout the year that are suitable for all ages.

Woodland Wednesdays: Spring into action - Wednesday 10th April 2019 - Spring is a magical time of year at Plas Newydd. Learn about the tell-tale signs that nature gives at this time of year.

Easter fun - 17th April - A series of fun, family springtime nature activities for all ages. Go on an egg hunt to learn more about the birds who laid them; build your very own nest or paint an egg for Easter.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt Friday 19th April – Monday 22nd April - Follow the clues in their nature hunt and crack the code to claim your chocolatey prize.
