Easter Bunny news
There was a break in the weather, the sun shon and the Easter bunny was spotted down at Grattans on Saturday and it left loads of eggs for our children to find. Every child managed to find an egg and there was a quiz for all the age groups and even a few prizes for parents, (although some of the questions where very difficult). A big thank you to everyone who came to support the club and all the children for having such great fun. A special mention to several older children who helped the younger ones found eggs in our great little community.
