Easter activities are being put online after planned events in Beacon Park had to be cancelled because of the coronavirus outbreak.

A new online programme has been drawn up by Lichfield District Council to help keep youngsters busy.

They include an online trail featuring Easter-themed puzzles and a series of Carrot Day activities.

Cllr Liz Little, cabinet member for leisure, said:

“It’s a really worrying time for everyone at the moment, so taking part in fun activities over the Easter holidays should help lighten the mood.”
