The Mayor of Merton has invited residents to join their massive Easter egg hunt this weekend.

'Massive Merton Easter Egg Hunt' aims to help children enjoy Easter whilst sticking to the rules of social distancing.

Merton has created a downloadable template for children to colour and stick on their windows, in the hopes that on their daily walk they can hunt other Easter eggs.

All children are invited to get creative by either colouring in a Easter Egg template, or by crafting an egg out of anything they find at home.

The Mayor of Merton, Janice Howard, said: “It has been such a challenging time for children and families.

"It would be fantastic if everyone could get together and help create some Easter joy -despite these times of unprecedented social restrictions to keep everyone safe.

“I hope the Easter egg hunt will go some way to bring the joys of Easter and Spring to our resident's neighbourhoods.

"I too was particularly looking forward to seeing families enjoying themselves at the Mayor of Merton’s annual Easter Egg Hunt at Morden Park.

“We hope this burst of creativity that all children and adults too, can join in with will help everyone enjoy the Easter weekend.”
