AN EASTER Egg hunt with a difference saw shoppers flock to Port Street to search out miniature doors in a quest to banish ‘goblins’ which took over the area.

The event saw 40 youngsters put on their detective hats on Easter Saturday (April 4) as they sent the goblins packing and helped the queen fairy triumph.

Throughout the day the children hunted out the small fairy doors, which were in fact replicas of the shop fronts. At each one they collected a letter eventually making a magic spell from the 20 doors to defeat the goblins and win an Easter egg.

In the end, all the children saved the day and received their eggs.

The children were also pleased to see the queen fairy, aka Racheal Moulton, of Moulton’s hair and beauty, and the queen goblin, depicted by Kim Dunn, from Bonk Skate shop.

The day was organised by the Bengeworth and Evesham Independent Committee who thanked everyone who helped making the doors, the team who helped on the day, and most of all the children who successfully saved Easter.

Ms Dunn, chairman of the committee, said: “I am very proud of everyone who took part and the efforts they made. There were 20 doors and 40 children that did the day. I was really chuffed with that.

Town Mayor, Coun Charlie Homer, paid a visit to judge the egg design competition and said: “What a fantastic day, great to see Port Street traders working together and I could see the children really enjoyed finding the doors.”

Proceeds from the day were donated to the work of the Bengeworth and Evesham Independent Committee, which plans to fund community projects.
