Pupils on the Easter egg trail at Dunster Castle

LOCAL families looking to celebrate Easter in a more traditional style can take part in a number of themed activities in the National Trust-owned Dunster Castle at the weekend.
They include an Easter trail supported by confectionery company Cadbury, which will give an Easter egg to every child who completes the trail.
Other family fun activities for visitors include face-painting, children’s entertainment, and an Easter themed play area.
The Easter trail involves egg hunters following a map around the National Trust site and visiting ‘trail’ points and collecting clues.
The events run from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Cadbury’s support of the National Trust Easter Trail is part of the company’s ‘Purple goes Green’ initiative, a programme to reduce its impact on the environment.
Cadbury ‘Egghead’ Easter eggs, which are the trail prizes, are unboxed and so use 70 per cent less cardboard packaging than the equivalent sized egg, creating less waste.
The confectionery company is contributing £150,000 to the National Trust Ancient Trees and Woodland conservation programme as part of the Easter Trail activity and its commitment to the environment.
