There’s some cracking Easter fun at Northumberlandia this week.

Families will be invited to follow an Easter trail around the ‘Lady of the North’ landform near Cramlington, answering a series of questions along the way.

And for all of those completing the trail, there will be a prize at the end.

Tesco Express in Monkseaton and Kenton has been supporting the Northumberland Wildlife Trust attraction’s Easter programme by donating 120 chocolate eggs for a prize draw.

Trust volunteer and self-confessed chocolate lover Jordan Spurling, who collected the eggs, said: “As a charity the trust relies on donations so, just as I give up a couple of hours each week to help out, I am delighted that Tesco has kindly donated the eggs, which will make the prize draw really ‘eggciting’ to enter.

“As a chocoholic I was more than happy to give up a few hours to collect them – and managed not to eat any.”

The Easter trail runs at Northumberlandia from Friday to Monday, between 10am and 3pm, costing £3 per child. All are welcome to join in.

Northumberland Wildlife Trust aims to educate and involve people of all ages in protecting the local environment.
