Easter parade to be first of many

THIS year Discovery Early Learning Centre in Bridgewater celebrated its first annual Easter hat parade in conjunction with RACT.

All of the children spent weeks planning and decorating their hats and bonnets with great care. The centre was fortunate that the weather stayed clear as children as young as six months paraded around the playground for family and friends.

The Centre’s children, including a very happy Ronnie Horne, enjoyed lots of fun activities at the first annual Easter hat parade, held in conjunction with RACT.

Along with the very colourful hat parade, there were three Easter raffles with plenty of chocolate to last a long time. RACT was also present to provide all parents a free car restraint check and adjustment for their cars.
