Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

HOW do you fancy cel­e­brat­ing Easter at Leeds Cas­tle? Be­tween April 10 and 13 there will be a host of spring-themed ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren. Youngsters can make an­i­mal masks in the craft mar­quee, visit the Bunny Bur­rows and fol­low a trail through the grounds to find chocolate bun­nies (small ad­di­tional charge for trail). The grounds will be burst­ing with spring colour and there will be a car­pet of anemones in the wood gar­den. Look out for nests and the rear­ing of young birds on the cas­tle’s wa­ter­ways. Ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude the Knights’ Realm ad­ven­ture play­ground, a tod­dlers’ play area and turf maze and the yew maze with mag­i­cal grotto in its cen­tre. Try pot­tery paint­ing and Tshirt print­ing at the Cas­tle Craft Cafe – a great way to cre­ate gifts for fam­ily and friends. The Craft Cafe is open from 11am to 4pm in the school hol­i­days and at week­ends. The Key to the Cas­tle ticket is valid for a year from date of pur­chase, mak­ing it ideal for re­peat vis­its over Easter. The cas­tle grounds open at 10am and the cas­tle at 10.30am. Last ad­mis­sion is 4.30pm and gates close at 6pm. De­tails from www.leeds-cas­ or by call­ing 01622 765400. For your chance to win one of three fam­ily day tick­ets, sim­ply an­swer the fol­low­ing ques­tion. Send your an­swer on a post­card or sealed en­ve­lope Ash­ford, Kent TN24 8JR or email kecom­pe­ti­tion@thekm by Fri­day, April 3, 2009.
