At the end of the hunt they will be able to find Millie the sheep sculpture where children will be able to add a piece of will to her fleece. 

During the Easter holidays there will be other activities to from the 3-15 April, including a nature trail through the immense parklands, with the opportunity to follow a check list and tick off the items that they see throughout their parkland discovery. The costs is £2.50 and includes a trail sheet, the loan of a pair of binocular, a bug pot to put in their favourite bugs and a packet of seeds to take home.
