Easter Bunny delights youngsters in Duidgee Park egg hunt

 THE EASTER Bunny delighted lots of excited children and handed out dozens of chocolate treats after a special Easter egg hunt organised by Toodyay Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service members on Easter Saturday morning.

About 100 children, parents and onlookers took part in the local community festivities, which featured a race to find hundreds of chocolate eggs hidden in and around the Duidgee Park playground.

“It took only four minutes for all 400 eggs to be found,” Toodyay Fire and Rescue Service Captain Ian MacGregor said.

Children who weren’t quick enough to find the hidden treasures went home happy with additional chocolate eggs provided from a basket by the Easter Bunny who made a welcome appearance after the race ended.

The Easter eggs were donated by Toodyay IGA Store owners Dean and Amanda Carter, and Toodyay Tyres owner Chris Brockliss donated sausages for a community breakfast barbecue cooked by local volunteers.
