Easter bunny leads children on a chocolate hunt at Stretford Mall
3:11pm Tuesday 10th April 2012 in News
YOUNGSTERS visiting the Stretford Mall at the weekend joined in the hunt with the Easter bunny for some hidden chocolate treats.
A sleepy, forgetful, accordion playing Easter bunny and his glamorous assistant Miss Egg Timer took children and their families on magical tours around the popular shopping centre in search of chocolate eggs on Easter Saturday.
Colin McCrory, Stretford Mall manager, said: “I think it would be fair to say that the adults were having as much fun as the children and there was a lot of chocolate being eaten. They all seemed to be having an eggs-cellent time.
“We are a very family-friendly centre and with it being the school holidays, we felt it was only right to invite the Easter bunny and Miss Egg Timer to join us and make shopping that bit more fun for everyone.”
The tours lasted for half an hour with lots of singing, dancing and playing games along the way. All the children who took part had a chance to enjoy a chocolate egg at the end of their hunt.
