Easter Saturday sees town centre ‘choc-full’
Douglas town centre was ‘choc-full’ of children on Easter Saturday tracking down clues in a treasure hunt that would earn them a chocolate bunny and a face-painting session.
The event had been organised by Douglas Development Partnership in association with Davisons. An entry form led children to shops in the town centre displaying a clue in the window. Each clue was a letter and when all the letters were found they spelt ‘EASTER BUNNY’. Children then took their completed form to Tower House to claim their chocolate prize, join an Easter craft workshop and have their face painted.
Douglas town centre manager Gill Anderson said: ‘This was the first time we’d organised an Easter event such as this and we were very pleased with the response. It’s all part of the Partnership’s drive to bring the town centre alive throughout the year, encourage more people to visit and stay longer which, in turn, helps support local stores in these difficult trading times.’
