Easter ‘Eggs’travaganza at Bell Court

The Easter bunny came to Bell Court this weekend and brought the sunshine, as well as all kinds of activities and treats with him.

Guests to the leisure centre were treated to a weekend of storytelling and Easter crafts, performances from Two Tone and Betsy Harmony, face painting and of course, lots of chocolate!

Many popped along to enjoy Easter in the sunshine as well as take part in our Easter egg hunt in search for 20 eggs hidden around the centre.

We hope you enjoyed Easter at Bell Court and don’t forget to share your photos on our Twitter (@BellCourtLife) and Instagram (bellcourtstratford) pages!
