A wide array of events is being lined up in Bloxwich during April to celebrate Easter.
Walsall Council's district centre management team working alongside Bloxwich Business Partnership, Bloxwich Children's Area Partnerships, Bookmark Bloxwich (Bloxwich Library) and the council's Greenspaces team have joined forces to organise three days of family fun in the village.
The Easter activities get underway on Thursday 14 April with the Bloxwich Bunny Hop & Party at All Saints Church gardens and Bookmark Bloxwich Library, Elmore Row from 10am to 2pm. Activities include an Easter egg trail, Easter Bunny and family themed activities. People are invited to bring their own picnic.

The events culminate on Saturday 23 April with the Eggsta Special Easter Event from 11am to 3pm based around the market centre, High Street, Electric Palace and King George V Playing Fields. The day includes Easter fun activities, Reach Up climbing frame, Easter bonnet parade, Easter egg trail and a team egg hunt competition.
Nikki Rolls, Walsall Council regeneration officer, said: "There is a really good programme of events lined up in Bloxwich to celebrate Easter and hopefully people will be able to find the time to attend on at least one if not all of the days. It truly shows that partnership working can create a great events programme for the community."
