AN EASTER egg hunt with a twist is being offered at Alice Holt Forest by Go Ape.

While customers are tackling the obstacles up in the canopy, they will need to keep their eyes peeled for hidden eggs along the course.

Once they have zipped back to the ground, they need to head to the cabin to be in with a chance to win tickets to some of the site’s partner attractions – Birdworld, Paultons Park, Winchester Science Centre and Blue Reef Aquarium.

A small donation is required and everything raised will go to Go Ape’s Farnham-based 2018 charity, Challengers.

Neighbouring Birdworld also offers egg hunts from today (Friday) until April 15, from 10am–5pm. Both children and adults can explore the 26-acre park to try to spot 50 ‘eggstra’ special eggs hidden by Birdworld’s mascot, Percy Penguin.

On weekdays, visitors can also enjoy the opportunity to join in with face painting, Easter-themed crafts or children’s entertainment, running between 11am and 4pm.

After completing the trail, entries at all levels will be placed into different draws for the chance to win prizes, including Birdworld penguin feeding vouchers for over-sevens and cuddly toys.

Further afield, at Highclere Castle, near Newbury, its Easter egg hunt is in aid of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
