Newton the Easter Bunny will travel aboard his float from Sunday to Wednesday, 5pm-8pm.

He will start in the Barrowby Gate area followed by the Alma Park and Harrowby area, and then Houghton Road, Springfield Road, Harlaxton Road and the Earlesfield estate.

Businesses in Grantham have been doing their bit for Newton. Giant eggs will adorn the float as Newton travels the streets of Grantham, all emblazoned with sponsor details.

Organisers Tess Sheehy and Kristy Burks (pictured) came up with the idea to make even more cash for their chosen charities - Grantham Foodbank, Grantham Deaf Children’s Society and equipment for pupils of Huntingtower Primary School.

Sponsors wigned up are:

Robert Holland Funeral Directors

Central Motors

Trade Carpets

Sam Ballamm Motors

R&N Windows


Food 4 Thought

Kevin G Bellemy Roofing and Building Maintenance Services Ltd

Can Cabs

A1 Perfect Plumbing

Gonerby Moor Property and Garden Services

Continuing with the theme of Easter, Wyndham Park will hold its annual Easter egg hunt for under-11s on Saturday, March 30, at 10.30am. Entry is £1 with a small chocolate reward for all. Entry forms will be available at the shelter by the car park. Proceeds will go towards park improvements. A duck race organised by the Rotary Club of Grantham Kesteven will follow.
