‘Eggcellent’ things happening in Hunslet Carr this weekend

Hunslet Carr Residents Association are hosting two Easter-themed family events this coming weekend (8-9 April 2017), and everyone’s invited – to have a laugh, but also perhaps to ‘catch the vision’ for what the group is achieving locally.

On Saturday (8 April), between 10am-12pm, there’s an Easter Craft Fair and coffee morning at Woodhouse Hill Community Centre – just along from the New Bay Horse pub, off Balm Road. There will be craft items for sale, produced at their monthly workshops (on the third Tuesday of each month) – and plenty of tea, coffee, and cake.

And on Sunday (9 April), from 2pm, there’s a Easter egg hunt for children at the Sandon Mount community allotment, next to Hunslet Carr Primary School; children must be aged under 10, and be accompanied by an adult.

Kenny Saunders, the association chair, told us:

“It’ll be great to welcome a load of local people for these events. And as well as having fun, we hope they’ll get to hear what we’re doing as a group – and perhaps catch the vision for what we’re doing, and even get involved. From small beginnings, we’ve achieved really good things in the past few years – like the Bay Horse garden, the improvements on Pepper Road, and the allotments. We’ve come a long way – but there’s lots to do, so we definitely need more people to help out, to improve the community.”
