THE sun was shining on Herm this Easter – some would say it was the perfect weather for an Easter egg hunt.
The White House Hotel hosted their annual egg hunt on Sunday, with many residents and visitors turning up for the festivities. It was an impressive turnout with many children armed with Easter pails, sandcastle buckets and bags ready to find the many miniature eggs the White House team had hidden. This year with the sun shining the staff were able to hide the eggs both inside and outside in the hotel gardens.
Before the event began, we were delighted to find out that the Easter bunny was visiting to surprise the children. He happily hopped around to witness the children hunting out their treats while stopping for pictures with many of the families partaking.
Within five minutes the usually peaceful and tranquil hotel was overrun with excited boys and girls searching for their chocolatey treats.
As the children ran riot through the hotel lounges, many guests joined in the fun by pointing the excited children in the right direction. After a chaotic but thrilling sprint every egg was found and the management team went on to give out several special Easter eggs and prizes. Large Easter eggs were given to the older volunteer children who had helped to set up the hunt that morning and a special prize was given to one boy who had been hunting for eggs but had been keen to help other children along the way and sacrificed his own chocolate surprises to make sure others had plenty to take home.
Lastly there were prizes of gift vouchers for Herm’s gift shops for finding the two golden bunnies and a very special golden egg, which was won by resident Isabelle Taylor.
