Eleri scoops egg-cel­lent top prize after big response to Easter egg hunt

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

FOURYEAROLD Eleri Evans was the lucky winner of the Ym­laen Llanelli Easter Egg hunt.

For nearly two weeks dur­ing the Easter hol­i­days, chil­dren were able to take part in a competitio­n which saw them look for 10 wooden eggs hid­den in busi­nesses around Llanelli town cen­tre.

Some of the eggs were placed in shop win­dows and oth­ers hid­den in the shops them­selves en­sur­ing the task was not an easy one!

The competitio­n was run in con­junc­tion with Llanelli Li­brary who gave out the en­try forms.

They also housed the postbox for com­pleted forms and handed out a crème egg to ev­ery child that man­aged to fin­ish the trail and find all the eggs.

A to­tal of 93 en­try forms were posted back to the li­brary with the over­all winner be­ing drawn at ran­dom by li­brary staff.

The 10 busi­nesses that took part were Rugby Heaven, Angie’s Baby Cwtch, The Works, Coast Kitchens and Bath­rooms, The Fra­grance Shop, Kather­ine’s Hair Sa­lon, The Welsh Burger Com­pany, Pan­dora’s Box, Joly’s Café and Michelle’s.

None of the busi­nesses knew where the other eggs were hid­den, much to the frus­tra­tion of some of the chil­dren.

Eleri Evans, a fre­quent vis­i­tor to Llanelli Li­brary, was the lucky winner of the hamper do­nated by The Works. She was very pleased that all of her hard work (helped by her mum and her two broth­ers Owen and Rhys) had paid off.

Ym­laen Llanelli Chair Les­ley Richards said: “The competitio­n was a great way to get peo­ple vis­it­ing the dif­fer­ent busi­nesses in town. Thanks to the li­brary staff for do­ing most of the work and en­cour­ag­ing chil­dren to take part in the competitio­n, it wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble with­out them. Well done to Eleri and all the other chil­dren that took part.”

Martin Black­well, man­ager of The Works who do­nated the hamper as a prize said: “Once again, the peo­ple of Llanelli were treated to a fan­tas­tic Easter event. The Works Llanelli were proud to do­nate the hamper prize for this year’s Easter egg hunt and re­ally pleased with the foot­fall it drove into the store. Con­grat­u­la­tions to this years winner, hope you en­joy the good­ies Eleri.”
