Easter egg hunt with a twist in Halesowen
23 March 2012
YOUNGSTERS from a local Halesowen primary school will be taking part in an Easter egg hunt with a twist.
Halesowen officers have organised a fun 'personal safety' egg hunt for 60 pupils in year 2 and 5 of Newfield Primary School on Monday 26 March at 1:30pm.
This will not be your average Easter egg hunt; this will be a fun, interactive event where local neighbourhood officers can educate children on personal safety and anti-social behaviour.
Police Community Support Officer Beth McAlister, who has organised the event, said: "I ran a similar event last year and it was really successful - I find that the kids take in more valuable information when they enjoy what they are doing.
"Officers will be hidden around the 'egg trail'. When the pupils find the officer, an egg shaped cut out with personal safety and anti- social behaviour messages will be read out and advice given to the children.
"Chocolate eggs will be handed out to the winning team and the runners up and Cadbury's Cream Eggs will be handed out to all the children taking part".
