Dino Easter Egg Hunt Trail launched in Bury St Edmunds town centre





A dinosaur-themed egg hunt is under way in Bury St Edmunds town centre, with more than 40 businesses taking part.

The Dino Easter Egg Hunt Trail was launched on Wednesday to offer families a free activity to enjoy during the school holidays.

Families are invited to explore the town centre and hunt down 10 eggs located in shop windows for a chance to win an Easter hamper.

Once found, the location of each egg can be listed on a competition form which can be found at participating businesses and in the Bury Free Press newspaper.

The event was organised by Bury St Edmunds Business Improvement District (BID) and each egg, numbered from one to 10, will be displayed in shop windows until April 7.

Chief executive Mark Cordell said: “In the past we have hosted trails around the town and they have been very successful.

“We thought we would try something a little bit different this year so that’s why we decided on the dinosaur theme.

“It’s going to be great. We want to bring families into the town during the school holidays to have a bit of fun, free of charge.

“It will also hopefully bring in some additional footfall into our businesses and gives people a chance to visit shops they might not normally go to.”

Completed forms should be returned to one of the participating businesses or to the Our Bury St Edmunds office, in Woolhall Street.

Another dino-themed event will be kicking off on April 10, when life size dinosaurs visit the market.
