Easter will soon be here and with it comes the annual tour of Grantham’s most famous rabbit, Newton.

Along with his gang of volunteers, Newton the Easter Bunny will be touring the town over three days, March 22-24, and will end on March 26 with a day a spent in the Isaac Newton Shopping Centre where families can pay him a visit and have their photos taken.

Now in his fourth year, Newton and friends will once again be raising money for good causes. Benefiting this year will be Grantham Fire Station and Huntingtower Community Primary Academy.

Huntingtower PTFA member Tessa Sheehy organises the popular annual tour. She said: “Please come out and support Newton and his good causes. We’re so grateful to everyone who contributes in any way.

“We’re looking forward to seeing you all!”

First on Newton the Easter Bunny’s route is the Alma Park area of Grantham, on March 22. The following day, he will be travelling around the Earlesfield estate, and the final day (March 24) he will be in the Huntingtower/Springfield Road area of town.

Families wishing to give him a wave and throw a few coins in the collection buckets should keep an eye out for Newton between 5pm and 7pm.
