A Great Easter in Dartmouth

Record number of entries in Dartmouth Easter Chick Hunt

THERE were more than 170 entries in this year’s Dartmouth Easter Chick Hunt.

Leanne Tucker, manager at Cafe Alf Resco said:  “It was the best yet and probably a reflection on just how busy Dartmouth was over the Easter break.”

The winner was Lyla from Nottingham who gets a giant chocolate egg handcrafted by Saveurs of Dartmouth.

Competitors were challenged to find 12 knitted Easter chicks in the shop and business windows of Lower Street.

They could be found at: Lazy Sundays, The Good Intent/Dartmouth Ice Cream Company, Inspire Beauty, The Cutting Lounge, Danielli, Anthony Waring, Dartmouth Community Bookshop, Roy Greenslade, Time and Tide, Gifts for Gentlemen, Distinctly Living and Dart Optical.

Traders in Foss Street also held their annual Easter Egg Hunt, where shoppers were challenged to follow the trail through the shops to find the eggs.

Easter fun sat nicely alongside religious services in the town where the churches of St Saviour’s, St Clement’s and St Petrox celebrated Holy Week with Sung Eucharist, a Procession of Palms, Holy Communion, an Easter vigil, children’s workshops and Evensong.

Foss Street Easter Egg Hunt

GERALDINE the Giraffe made a traditional appearance to crowds of onlookers as winners were announced in the Foss Street Easter Egg Hunt in Dartmouth.

Caroline Drew said:  “It was a hugely successful day and the street was teeming with families involved in searching for eggs in shop windows as adults were tasked with solving anagrams of dog breeds from given letters.

“As usual, at the 4pm draw of the correct entries, people gathered for the hand-out of Easter egg prizes outside Simon Drew Gallery under the newly erected Geraldine the Giraffe sculpture sticking her neck out from the top window of the gallery.

“It was all good fun and a tradition that we’ve adhered to in Foss Street  for more than 30 years.”
