IT WAS glitter and glue galore when hundreds of youngsters took part in a free spring-themed workshop in the Vancouver Quarter, King’s Lynn.

The event, held in New Conduit Street, saw children and their parents create butterflies, decorate pots and plant sunflower seeds last Thursday.

“We’ve had some excellent feedback from parents who brought their children along and clearly this event was a big hit with families,” said centre manager Abbie Panks.

“It was wonderful to see so many children having fun and getting crafty

“We’re looking forward to families sharing pictures of their sunflowers growing too.”

The first Vancouver Quarter Saturday Club of the year was also held last week. The Fairyland Trust helped youngsters to make miniature gardens with real wildflowers.

An Easter basket and bonnets workshop was held yesterday ahead of tomorrow’s Easter egg trail.

Families will need to find 15 giant eggs between 1pm and 5pm, mark them on the map provided and return it for the chance to win £250 shopping vouchers.

Anyone who manages to correctly find 10 or more eggs will also receive an Easter treat.
