Hempsted Hare Hunt 2018

On Saturday 24th March, the Friends hosted their first Hempsted Hare Hunt! Children were invited to purchase a map from the Village Hall (‘Hare Headquarters’!) which led them on a trail around the village to find 11 hares and clues, which would spell out a special message. Once completed, the children could return their maps in exchange for a small prize.

Luckily the rain stayed away and over 75 children and their families participated in the hunt around the village. There was lots of fun to be had following the trail, with cakes, tea, coffee, bunny face painting, colouring and a chocolate tombola all available in the village hall. The event was a huge success, raising over £800, which will be going towards the purchase of new and exciting outdoor play equipment for the school.

The Friends would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the local businesses who agreed to sponsor the hares – their support is greatly appreciated.  A sponsor poster was displayed next to each of the hares located around the village, and also included on the back of the trail map.
