Contest to find the best bonnet

Harborough Market is getting into the spirit of spring by organising an Easter bonnet contest.

The market, in Northampton Road, is inviting children aged up to 12 to design and make an Easter bonnet and bring it along to the market for judging between 10.15am and 1pm on Thursday, April 2.

There will also be a craft market to keep parents busy as well as a children’s crafting area and other fun entertainment including balloon modeller Jimmy James.

The two winners chosen by a judging panel will win a new bike and there will also be 12 runners-up prizes.

Market manager Sairah Butt said: “It will be a great fun-filled morning.

“The bigger and brighter the bonnet the better.”
