After months of lockdown, isolation and cancelled events, Potton families welcomed the opportunity to take part in the Hall For All Easter Bunny Trail fundraiser on Saturday, April 3.

A socially distanced, outdoor trail took families from the Market Square, along quiet streets and to the cricket pitch where they could spread out picnic blankets and enjoy refreshments.

The trail included finding the names of 16 bunnies in independent shop windows along the route, with every youngster taking part receiving a prize box containing crayons, a quiz sheet, sweets and a carrot.

Take away refreshments were available from the Boundary café, which also donated a percentage of its profits to Potton Hall For All. Support was also given from Tesco’s, Londis, Tysoe’s, Cameron’s, Colpac and Potton Library.

An eggstra special hamper was delivered to Mya, aged 5, the winner of the drawing competition. Cllr Tracey Wye, who chose the winning entry, pronounced it the hardest job she’d been given all year.

Knitted bunnies were for sale at the end of the trail and volunteers took the opportunity to promote the town recycling scheme, which also raises funds for the new Community Hall Project.

The event raised nearly £400, and more than 300 people took part.
