We had so much fun doing the Fabergé egg hunt, we decided to do our own at Trotters. Our’s was much better, of course, because you got to eat the eggs at the end! All four London stores did an Easter Egg hunt during the holidays and it was great to see so many little customers having a go. Here’s what happened when we stopped in at Northcote Road …

First of all, we met William. He only popped in for a haircut but before long he was in hot pursuit of some chocolatey treats! Trotters own (not so new) Mum devised the cunning clues to six locations around the store where a pack of stickers were hidden, and once the egg-quester had six stickers on their card, they got a tasty reward. Simple.

William is a real brainbox. He solved the hardest clue in no time at all and was on to the next while we were still scratching our heads. “I’m white and blue, my name’s Eloise and there’s a skirt made for me”. We were stumped. Meanwhile, William was looking for something that goes “baa” during bath-time …

Squirters! Farmyard squirters to be precise. And then he was off again! Something red to keep your feet dry … shiver me timbers, a puzzle for mateys … knobbly knees and turned out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose (the Gruffalo, duh!) … We could barely keep up with him as he flew around the shop! It wasn’t long before he was presenting his stickers to the Keeper-of-Chocolate and claiming a much deserved reward.

Good work, William! In fact, good work to everyone who joined in the Easter Egg hunts. We had so much fun, that we might apply to do the Easter bunny’s job for him next year!
