Launched with the St Botolph’s Tiddlywinks social group for young children and parents, it will run until April 11. Starting at the Rectory, 5 Spire View, Quarrington, youngsters collect a map and follow the trail, stopping at eggs along the way. Children must arrange the letters collected to make a well-known phrase from the Bible about what happened on Easter Day.
Rev Mark Thomson explained it was a follow up to their “Follow the Star” trail at Christmas. The trail, with treats along the way, ends at St Botolph’s Church and children are invited to bring a painted pebble to put in the Easter Garden.
The Co-op on London Road and customers have donated eggs for local children too, some of which were presented by Rev Thomson to Quarrington Pre-School on Grantham Road.
The church also put together Easter gift bags for 40 elderly or recently bereaved people, containing hot cross buns, an Easter egg, a palm cross, biscuits and an Easter card.
