Egg-cellent Easter egg hunt


Community spirit was alive and kicking in Rodborough, with the eagerly anticipated Friends of Rodborough School Easter egg hunt.

Brownies, Beavers, toddlers and playgroup made some wonderful decorated giant eggs, along with many families from the school and the community.

Families flocked from all over Stroud, and even further afield, to search for all 37 giant eggs hidden in the streets and parks of Rodborough.

Sophie Harrison said: We had fairytale characters, Rapun’shell and Cinderegga; history-inspired Sarcopheggus and Ancient Egg-ypt; children’s classics Tig-egg who came to tea and Mog the Forgetful Egg; and interactive Egg-cellent yolks and Beavers’ Square Chicken Challenge.

Hannah Doshi, Chair of Friends of Rodborough School. added: “This year’s event has been a great success, not least because of the incredible support from parent volunteers and teachers who have helped pull this all together.

“The egg creations were fantastic, the atmosphere vibrant and the sun even made an appearance. I’d like to add a big thank you to all the businesses that sponsored the event this year, as well as all volunteers and participants. We are looking forward to welcoming visitors back next year.”
