A hunt for hundreds of Easter eggs is taking place at a free festival in Neasden this weekend.

Easter farm animals, including rabbits, chickens and baby lambs, will also take part in a community event at St Raphael’s Children’s Centre on Saturday from midday to 4pm.

Avid hunters will get the opportunity to search for hundreds of Easter eggs. There are also prizes for the best egg designs and a host of other activities.

People can enjoy a BBQ accompanied by music and browse and buy from a range of stalls selling everything from cakes to jewellery.

Cllr Zaffar Van Kalwala, who is organising the event, said: “There is fun for everyone at the Easter egg hunt with lots of great activities, and you could even scoop a tasty prize.

“I’d like to thank John Sisk construction and Barnardos for their support and wish everyone the best of luck for the hunt.”
