We had a good time looking for Easter eggs in the wood on Saturday and all the hunters received a chocolate one, as a reward for their efforts! The refreshments were delicious, as usual! Four lucky people won more chocolate treats in our raffle.
Many people had not visited Buckle's Wood before and were impressed by our achievements. Members of the committee have worked hard to ensure a successful event, so a big thank you to Fiona and Pam (hunt and Easter egg organisers), Jackie, Caroline, Alison and other refreshment providers, and last but not least, Maria and Wheaten Mill for providing the raffle prizes.

The sun was peeping out every now and then as I wandered around the wood, admiring the lovely display of flowers on the blackthorn bushes in the hedgerow. There were lots of bumble bees hovering along the ground, looking for suitable holes to lay their eggs and a Peacock butterfly was sunning itself by the side of the ride. Let's hope that Saturday morning on the 16th April will be sunny and warm, for our EASTER EGG HUNT. It starts at 10.30 (meet at the village hall) and finishes, with a raffle and refreshments The following evening was warm and windless. A good time to see if the barn owl was about. No barn owl, but a lovely sunset!
