Easter Fun Day 2002

The Community Association once again organised an Easter Fun Day on Saturday, 30th March 2002 at the community centre.

The day went well and various activities were enjoyed. 17 groups took part in the Family Treasure Hunt which was won by Elaine and the Castle Wemyss Weasels. A special mention to Ryan and his pals who did very well and are determined to come back next year and win.

There were 39 entries in the Decorate an Egg Competition and the winners of the three age groups were Jennifer aged 12, Sophie aged 11 and Victor aged 3. The entries were very colourful and imaginative and every entry won a prize. There were games, competitions and races and a big thanks to everyone who helped out on the day.
