Easter days out on the Isle of Wight

This was about our 2019 Easter events which have now finished. Bunny has been extra busy this Easter. He's hidden clues across our Isle of Wight sites, from Bembridge Windmill in the east, via Mottistone Gardens and Newtown, all the way to the Needles Battery in the west. But can you find the clues about wildlife he's left behind to help you solve the puzzle? If you can, a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat awaits. We've additional fun too with pocket rocket-making, minibeast safaris, and ‘tree story’ walks.
