IN VIDEO – Easter eggs and bonnets raised funds for Tamworth Carnival

Wednesday, 4th April 2018

CHILDREN gathered at Bolehall Manor Club on Saturday 31 March to hunt for Easter eggs and take part in a bonnet competition; all to raise funds for the Together 4 Tamworth Carnival which takes place in June.

The Easter Egg event was organised by Together 4 Tamworth and offered a whole raft of entertainment for local children and their parents.

The Deputy Mayor, Cllr Peter Thurgood and his wife Ann picked the best Easter Bonnets and the winners were Dylan Thomas aged 5 and Elizabeth Stevens aged 4.

Entertainment was provided by Bibbledy Bob the clown and there was also magic, balloon sculptures and comedy for the children.

Some of the children also took part in plate spinning, fortunately, with plastic plates as not everyone was as skilled as Bibbledy Bod!
