Hair salon Hands on Hair joined forces once again with The Nubian Times for the fourth year running, to host the largest free Easter Egg Hunt in Manchester. On Easter Sunday 27 March 2016 at 12pm – 3pm, the 15th annual event will be at Alexandra Park, near the lake – Demesne Road, Whalley Range entrance – from 12pm-3pm.
Well over 100 children – accompanied by parents – often turn up to this event; many of the children who attend are in care or from struggling families, as well as single-parents.
To make it a truly funfest extravaganza, the police cadets join us for the second-year running, Lions, PC – Cub and bunnies – will be at hand to entertain those present. Needless to say, sweets, cup-cakes, chocolate, Easter eggs and prizes will be in abundance. Hula hoops will be flying, amidst egg and spoon races, as children challenge themselves to energy and endurance levels that put the adults to shame. Essentially and secretly, this will keep everyone fit.
The proprietor of Hands on Hair Ms Nevins said, “The adult races are always hilarious, no rules, cheating seems to be a standard, they are the biggest kids of all”.

This event will be filmed and photographed, so if you do not wish for your child to be captured on either film or pictures, this is not the event for you.
For 15 years, this event has been funded by Hands On Hair. Over the last four years, with ‘The Nubian Times/TNT News’ partnership, they have been able to bring onboard community businesses and shops.
This year Manchester City Council has finally recognised our huge works and donated funds to enable us to accommodate even more children this year.
