Friends of French Weir Park are hoping for the sun to shine this Sunday so local children can enjoy the park's annual Easter egg hunt.

Local mum and Taunton councillor Justine Baker is hoping the park will remain dry this Sunday
French Weir Park has flooded several times over the last 12 months and local mum and Friend of French Weir Park, Justine Baker, is hoping the hunt will give children the opportunity to play with the new park equipment.
She said: "This year our lovely park has been under water several times and it was horrible to see the great new sand digger area under water a week after it had been installed.
"The Easter Egg hunt is the first event of the 2013 in the park and we are hoping for a dry day so will give people the chance to come and see our new play equipment, which includes some new swings and of course have ago on it all."
"Last year was our most successful egg hunt so we are making it bigger this year, adding on the chance to do crafts."
The event runs from 10.30am – 12pm on March 24. Every child who attends is guaranteed a chocolate egg and has the chance to get stuck into some fun Easter crafts at the park. The charge is £2 per child.
Justine added: "Each event is organised and run by a small group of volunteers, we spend ages planning such events and are delighted to keep the cost of our events low so that everyone can come and join in the fun!"
