Easter Egg Hunt

David Wil­son Homes held a spe­cial Easter Egg hunt at its Lauder Gar­dens de­vel­op­ment in Strathaven at the week­end. Easter treats were hid­den in­side the new­build homes and in the gar­den. Once all the eggs had been found, kids were able to board the ‘fun bus’ – a dou­ble-decker fit­ted out with soft play kit. Estelle Sykes, sales di­rec­tor for Bar­ratt Homes West Scot­land, said: “The Easter Egg hunt is a great tra­di­tion and judg­ing by the looks on their faces, our young vis­i­tors re­ally en­joyed it. The ‘fun bus’ went down a storm as well, and it al­lowed the grown-ups a chance to dis­cover what Lauder Gar­dens has to of­fer with­out hav­ing to worry about keep­ing an eye on their lit­tle ones!”

wa­ter­ing cans and gloves, the school also re­ceived an in­sect sculp­ture ho­tel and wildlife at­tract­ing seeds to en­cour­age wildlife into the school gar­dens. Elaine Kirk­wood, headteacher at Kirk­land­park Pri­mary School, said: “We are thrilled with this kind do­na­tion from CALA Homes which is a great way to get the chil­dren more in­volved in gar­den­ing. Chil­dren can learn new skills, have fun and de­velop self-con­fi­dence by spend­ing time in the gar­den which is some­thing we ac­tively en­cour­age. This new equip­ment will help get the chil­dren en­gaged with the school gar­dens as well as cre­ate a more at­trac­tive en­vi­ron­ment for ev­ery­one to en­joy.”
