Easter Egg Hunt

Chorlton and Whalley Range Easter Egg Hunt

The local scouts of  2/249th Manchester , Chorlton Scouts and 2nd Whalley Range Scouts to create a great Big Egg Hunt for the children and families of Chorlton and Whalley Range. We’ve placed Easter Eggs in and around Chorlton.  There are 12 different designs to find and over 100 in total!

How it works

Anyone who wants to join in is welcome to take part in our egg hunt, it’s not just for Scouts. Our Eggs will be in place between 27th March and 18th April 2021. During this time you are welcome to hunt as many as you can, see how many you can find. When you find an egg, take a picture or a selfie and share online using #ChorltonScoutsEggHunt.

Please remember to leave any eggs you find in place for others to find.

Covid-19 Advice

This activity is designed to be done in family groups and is deliberately kept local so that it can be done during normal exercise walks in the Chorlton area. Should you come across an egg at the same time as someone else, remember to keep socially distant. We advise to avoid touching the boards and to sanitise your hands if you do touch them. Our team will wear gloves when deploying and removing the boards.

No Chocolate?

As much as we’d love to give out some prizes, We think this activity would be safer for all involved if parents/families provide any chocolate incentives!

Egg Hunt Environmental Policy

You may notice, our eggs are made of plastic, that’s because we hope to reuse them in future years. If you find one of our eggs somewhere it shouldn’t be or after 30th April 2021 then please contact chorlton@mansouthscouts.org.uk and we’ll arrange to get it back.

Thank you to Chorlton Scouts for organising.

Did you enjoy it?

At 2nd 249th Manchester we offer Scouting to boys and girls aged 5 3/4 to 14 year olds, so why not join in the fun weekly! We always welcome some bigger kids (known as “Adult Volunteers”) to, which helps us run activities like these on a weekly basis or however often you can!

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
