Hunstanton Easter egg treasure trail!

Hunstanton Easter egg treasure trail!

The Hunstanton & District Festival of Arts (HDFA) are presenting a new event for Easter 2021

You have the chance of winning an Easter Egg courtesy of Tesco Hunstanton.

The Easter Treasure Trail features 10 questions about local landmarks and historic sites in Hunstanton, starting at the Coastguard lookout and finishing at Hunstanton Green and offers everyone a chance to enjoy some outdoor activities in a covid-safe way.

Chair of the HDFA Christine Earnshaw said: “With Easter around the corner, we felt it would be fun to engage with our community with a fun quiz based on some of the historic and iconic places around our lovely town.

“The Treasure Trail can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone at a time of day to suit them over the course of a week and we hope the added incentive of being in with a chance of winning a scrumptious Easter Egg from our local Tesco will encourage people to get involved.

"Get your answers in to us before midnight on Thursday 8th April and the first 20 correct answers drawn at random will each win a lovely Easter egg. Enjoy!"
