Marie Easter Egg Count

Easter Egg Competition
Marie on Bath Street are running an Easter Egg Competition. They have lots of jars filled with Mini Eggs, and  are asking people to guess how many eggs are in them. The correct/closest answer wins a £20 Marie Gift Voucher! Children and families are welcome to take part!

Thanks to Verity for the picture.

There will also be an Easter Party in the Albert Park on Saturday 31st March, 2 pm to 4 pm. This has become an annual family event.
