Things to Do this Easter Holiday

Fun for All the Family

The Easter Holidays are always a lot of fun with promises of the year ahead.  It’s the first point in the year where many of our local attractions are open and the great English weather, fingers crossed, is glorious so we can really appreciate the sights and sounds on our doorstep.

We’ve had two very short school terms, and the long summer term means that we need to make the most of family fun times.

There’s plenty to keep the little ones, and bigger ones, happy in the area in the Easter holidays and we’ve put together a little guide to help you navigate them to the best of your advantage.

The Filey Bird Garden and Animal Park opened its doors early this year, opening for the first time in the February half term however, in the Easter Holidays they will once again treat people to the joys of their Easter Treasure Hunt.  For just £1.00 you will receive a form with riddle-based clues, a logo pencil and a prize at the end - either a bag of Cadbury's Mini Eggs or a Creme Egg.  Simply work out the clues to help you find colourful eggs that are hidden around the park.  Each egg has a letter, so simply write down each letter and then unscramble them to spell an Easter phrase.

You can also get hands on with the lambs as well as other family friendly activities at Humblebee Farm.  If lambing is on your Bucket List tick it off this March!

You can't beat the fun of the beach, but if it's a bit chilly it can sometimes be a bit of a chore to sit there all day.  You can start at Country Park for a turn in the park, followed by a bit of rock pooling on the Brigg. No matter the weather, a walk on the beach is always uplifting and thanks to the weather, there are plenty of rocks to have a look around and see if you can spot any fossils.  Finish off your walk with the maze in Crescent Gardens and bookend your walk with a further play in the park at Glen Gardens.

If you manage to tie your beach walk into the Easter Weekend, make sure you support the Filey Lifeboat Easter Extravaganza where there will be fun and games aplenty, with all funds going to support the running of Filey Lifeboat.

Slightly further afield at Killerby, there is the Footgolf, great if you have slightly bigger kids who love a challenge, why not finish it off with a little snack (or full-blown lunch!) at The Stained Glass Centre. 

Two Easter treats that have been added since the magazine went to print are two Easter Egg Hunts.  One with Filey Childcare where you can collect a competition form from reception at Filey Childcare for £1 and walk around the businesses in town looking for numbered eggs.  Return the form for a chance to win an Easter treat bag.

The second Easter Egg Hunt is in memory of Elsie, raising funds for Elsie's Arc.  Elsie's Arc will continue to support children and families with the rare form of cancer that Elsie had.  The event will be on Saturday 30th March at 2pm at All Saints Church Garden Area and will include a Cake Sale, Tombola, Tattoos and Games as well as an Easter Bonnet Competition.  Tickets are £4 and to book one call Steph on 07749 166330, this will help to ensure everyone is catered for on the day.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure you have a great Easter!
