Easter fun at Aotea Utanganui

April’s family activity day was held on Easter Monday and proved popular with children and adults alike. This event coincided with the Lion’s Easter carnival in Memorial Park. With a total door count of 131 for the day, it was the two butter making sessions at 11 am at 1pm that drew in the crowds, with around 30 or 40 people attending each session. It took about 20 minutes of churning the cream before the butter separated and there were plenty of eager volunteers to turn the handle. Once the butter was made and all the water squeezed out, we all had to try our freshly made butter on some warm hot cross buns! As well as the food, the Easter crafts kept the younger visitors busy all day long.

We run a family event at the start of each month; contact Rob Groat for further information by emailing rob.groat@stdc.govt.nz or phone 0800 111 323.
