Lisa Cook, who has seven-year-old twins in Y2 at the primary school, spoke to The Advertiser about the new family fun adventure which will take people on a one mile hunt around the village, through Bluebell Woods and the May Queen Field.

The 40-year-old said: “We know everyone has been going for walk after walk these last few months so we wanted to do something fun that would bring families together for the Easter break.

“We normally have fundraisers and fairs at the school but because of coronavirus we’ve had to think differently and at Christmas we organised an Elf Trail which was such a success.

"People were dressing up and really getting into the spirit of things and we managed to raise £300 which was amazing so we thought we’d do an Easter one.”

For those wanting to take part a £2 map can be bought from either the Village Store or Hayfield News which will lead you on a trail to help the Easter Bunny find ten hidden letters on either a rabbit or an egg and when unscrambled creates an Easter phrase.

Lisa said: “It’s only a mile long and can be done with little ones in pushchairs or carriers to jut walking toddlers or older children can go round alone.

"We know it’s been a tough year with many fun things cancelled so we just wanted to do something that put a smile on people’s faces for an hour or so. have some fun and get some exercise in the our beautiful village.

"We’d love to see your pictures of you having fun so don’t forget to tag Hayfield PTA in your pictures.”

The trail will be open from Saturday March 27 to April 17.

Every completed trail receives a chocolate prize, which has been donated by the Kinder Lodge pub, and all money raised will go into the school PTA to help fund more activities for the children.
