EASTER is almost upon us, and what better place to celebrate it than in your very own Harlow?

From live performances and Easter-egg hunts to fun and games for all the family, Harlow has plenty on offer to suit all ages and tastes.

The town’s annual Easter egg hunt at Herts and Essex Community Farm will take place on Saturday, April 15.

Fancy dress prizes, craft, tea, coffee, cake and light refreshments will be available.

The farm also has full wheelchair and pram access, with free admission for adults.

Alternatively, there is a full programme for children at Harlow Leisurezone.

Swimming crash courses will run for both beginners and improvers over the half term, while the Tots Activity Morning on Thursday, April 20 promises an hour-and-a-half of activities for little ones at just £3.70 per head.

Another Easter egg giveaway will also take place in the annual Water Gardens event on Saturday April 15.

The Easter Bunny will be present from 11am, and over 1,000 chocolate eggs will be given out to children every hour.

On Monday, April 17, Pets’ Corner in Harlow Town Park is having an Easter Family Fun Day, as part of Harlow’s 70-year anniversary celebrations and the park’s 60 years.

The sanctuary contains cows, horses, pigs, reindeer, llamas, rabbits, chickens, ducks and new lambs, and entry is free for all ages. Donations are also welcome.
