Chelmsford’s Easter Sunday Bunny Hunt

Chelmsford’s Easter Sunday Bunny Hunt

Hop along to Central Park this Easter to raise money for Charity

For the 15th year, Chelmsford Ladies Circle invites families to hop along Chelmsford’s annual Easter Bunny Hunt on Sunday 16th April in Central Park. Bunny Hunters search for the 15-year-old wooden bunnies, each named after a different famous rabbit, to earn their chocolatey prize.

The event starts at 11am and entry closes at 1pm, although prize collection will continue until 2pm. Tickets cost £3.50 in advance from the website ( or £4.50 on the day.

The event is in aid of the club’s charity of the year The Ark Centre in Springfield, Chelmsford, a therapy centre for children with Autism and social and communication difficulties.

The event was held for 13 years at Hylands House before moving to Central Park last year, where a successful day, despite high winds, encouraged the club to return to the same venue for 2017.

Feedback on the group’s facebook event last year included the following comments:

Donna Webb It was eggcellent fun. Thoroughly enjoyed all the eggcitement. Loved the eggstra special large bunny!
