This free community event consisted of an egg hunt, disco, bouncy castle as well as crafts, games and an appearance by the Easter Bunny.

Over 400 Easter eggs were donated by local businesses with over 300 of which given to the children who attended the event. The remaining eggs were donated to local community groups.

Heather Mills, Landlady of The Red Lion, said: “We run a family friendly pub, who always want to help and support the local community and charities in any way we can. We love joining in with all the crazy inventive community ideas, especially the ones with 1st Brimington Brownies. It always proves to be a great success.”

The event was organised by the 1st Brimington Brownies.

Angela Bottom, Leader of 1st Brimington Brownies, said: “Brownies is about giving girls the opportunity to experience new and exciting things.

“Heather always supports and encourages us with our fundraising, enabling us to buy equipment, crafts, uniforms, badges etc and take the Brownies on trips and visits at a subsidised cost. Without this support, many girls would miss out.”

The Brownie Unit would like to thank Heather, Andrew Strong and The Red Lion Team, as well as the businesses and organisations who kindly donated easter eggs to be given away at the event.

These businesses include: GRM Solutions Roofing specialists, JS Discounts, Mill M.O.T Servicing Centre, Mediumship with Kelly Scotherm, R&R Groundworks, D&A Landscaping and Councillor Ben Flook.

Due to the success of the event, the 1st Brimington Brownies have a number of upcoming events planned for this year including a Bubble Bonanza, a Summer Spectacular Haunting Halloween and Crazy Christmas.
