THE GREAT DIDSBURY EASTER CHICK HUNT 1st March to 6th April   1st March to beginning of April, 20 large knitted Easter Chicks will be perched in shop/business windows throughout Didsbury. Most should be visible as you walk past (You may need to check business opening times – all part of the challenge!). Use our map to track down each chick – they’re all unique and some even have props! Look out for the sign next to each chick to find its name and a fact about Francis House. Download the map/flyer from our website- or pick one up from Didsbury Library. Find as many chicks as you can and return your form in an envelope to be in with the chance of winning some fabulous Easter prizes! Include a small donation if you can (suggested donation of £2 per entry). Thank you – Francis House Children’s Hospice – poster on the notice board for your perusal.
