At least 50 children from the local community and their families came and joined in the fun at the Beaufort Community Centre’s Easter Trail.
The trail kicked off with the families exploring the Rookery park to track down 10 words to complete their trail sheet. There was plenty of time for fun on the swings and climbing equipment while they worked out the well-known biblical saying to complete the challenge.
Back at Beaufort Community Centre, volunteers handed out Easter Eggs to each successful word hunter. Interim Centre Manager, Lynn Chisadza, said “At one point we didn’t think we had enough easter eggs so someone donated more on the day.”
But that wasn’t the end of the fun. The children went into the hall to join in Easter crafts and watch a puppet show while the grown ups enjoyed complementary refreshments and a sit down.
Over 20 volunteers from Cranleigh Community Church and St Saviours organised, coordinated and ran the trail for which Beaufort Community Centre is very grateful. As Lynn said “These young children are not only our community’s future but the nation’s too. The Centre plans to actively engage the young people of Beaufort to help them stay safe, healthy, enjoy and achieve as well as become active participates of society.”
