What an Eggs'ellent Day

Did you notice anything different in Chislehurst today? Perhaps a few eggs up and down the High Street, a chicken walking around, 500 children perhaps?

We were so pleased that the Oriel Easter Egg Hunt got off to a cracking start, with around 500 children parading up and down the High Street on an Easter Egg trail, donned with decorative bonnets. 

With 15 members from the Chislehurst Business Group participating in the hunt, the children searched for each 'station' (a business) on their map to gain a stamp and treat. With the High Street beaming with happy faces and brightly decortaed bonnets, it really gave a lovely community feel - a vibrant, fun atmosphere which reminds us all why we love Chislehurst so much.



If you haven't already seen the Visit Chislehurst Facebook page, we have announced the top 15 winners for the 'bonnet' competition. Voting closes on Monday 17th April, with votes being counted with the most 'likes' on the childs photo. A list of fantastic prizes can be found here, with prizes from local businesses including Sweet Sundae and Win Green.

A special thanks goes out to our lead sponsor by Oriel Cafe Bar & Brasserie and our two associate sponsors - jdm Estate Agents and Parkvets

We also want to give huge thanks to all of the participating retailers this year, we really appreciate your fantastic energy and generosity, making the event a huge success.

We could not have done the event without our fantastic volunteers and organisers at Mead Road Infant School who organised the event with Tamsyn Clark a volunteer for Visit Chislehurst & The Chislehurst Business Group. Thanks to Liz Nash for wearing an incredible 'chicken' outfit all day and helping with the coordination of the event. The day was run by volunteers, too many to name individually, thank you for your time and generosity.


Please keep an eye out for more photos and stories from the day on our social media pages. We are also excited to announce the next event, 'The Bear Trail In The Woods' on Saturday 27th May, with more details following soon. Watch this space!
