Solv­ing the clues led to hid­den gems

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Marvellous Motors -

The sun shone over the Easter Bank Hol­i­day week­end as fam­i­lies flocked to Small­hythe Place near Ten­ter­den for the an­nual egg hunt.

More than 250 tick­ets were sold for the hunt that in­volved find­ing bunny char­ac­ters dot­ted round the gar­dens of the for­mer home of Vic­to­rian ac­tress Ellen Terry, a Na­tional Trust prop­erty.

Young­sters had to hunt for clues to find out who had let the bun­nies loose and were re­warded with choco­late eggs.

The 16th cen­tury home will be stag­ing more hol­i­day fun over the May half-term when chil­dren can en­joy crafts be­tween 11am-1pm daily (ex­cept Tues­day), in­clud­ing kite-mak­ing and dec­o­rat­ing photo frames.
