Easter Holiday fun at Cats Protection's National Cat Centre

Easter Holiday fun at Cats Protection’s National Cat Centre

The Easter bunny will be hopping his way to Cats Protection’s National Cat Centre to set up a springtime egg hunt next month. The charity will be hosting its annual Easter Egg Hunt at its centre in Lewes Road, Chelwood Gate, every day from Monday 10 April until Friday 21 April from 10am to 3pm.

Suitable for children aged from four to 12, youngsters will need to follow clues in their activity packs to work their way around the scenic nature trail. Admission is £2.50 per child which includes a prize. Children will need adult supervision and should wear suitable outdoor clothing and wellies as the trail can become muddy.

Visitor Centre Manager Dee McDonald said: “Our nature trail is particularly beautiful in the springtime and children will have great fun finding our secret fairy ring and spotting an abundance of wildlife and creepy crawlies. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the deer that roam the surrounding Ashdown Forest. We also have three lovely donkeys living on our site and of course, no visit would be complete without popping in to say hello to the cats currently in our care while they wait to find new homes. The great outdoors, chocolate, cats and donkeys – what better way to spend a day out in the Easter Holidays?”

Cats Protection’s National Cat Centre is the perfect day out for all the family all year round and is open every day from 10am-4pm.

As well as the nature trail, there is also a café, children’s play area and shop.
