Written by Archie Fergusson on 17/04/2014
After the incredible success of last years Easter Eggstravaganza when hundreds of folk turned out to enjoy the day’s events including the fabulous now world famous Glenfinart Walled Garden expectations are high for this Bank Holiday Monday’s Eggstravaganza
Steven Gillen from the Forestry Commission Scotland has promised “Bigger & Better” with this year more unique Local Arts and Crafts presented for you by some of Cowal’s finest Artist with all manner of things to look at from Art, Ceramics. Pottery , Wood, jewellery and many unique items crafted especially for this event and you may even purchase some of them ……….Of course the main attractions will be to entertain the young and young at heart members of the family, with competitions galore such as the Decorated Egg and Bonnet Competition, you can even have your face painted.
The big attraction again this year will be of course the Bunny Hunt and with so many children competing last year and finding all the Bunnies, this year some bunnies have found really good places to hide from you.
No local Outdoor event would be complete without the famous Walking Theatre Company with their unique brand of interactive outdoor theatre for everyone to join in, Mum’s and Dad’s look out for the WTC and enrol the children –what will the theme be year ?
Glenfinart Walled Garden’s plans for participating in Forestry Commission Scotland’s Annual Easter Eggstravaganza at Ardentinny on 21 April are well underway. After the winter storms which flooded parts of the garden, the volunteers (with the help of the Payback Team) have been hard at work constructing paths, installing edging in the vegetable plots and constructing raised beds in the polytunnel.
Claire’s innovative Children’s Garden is set to become a favourite with the kids this summer. Joining Bug Hotel, Elfin Cottage, the cycle wheel sculpture and the amazing flying fishes will be real flower beds complete with bed ends!
