“Hurrah” I hear you cry. Spring is officially here. To mark this momentous occasion when we shed our winter warmers and reveal those very pasty legs we have been keeping concealed, myself and the lovely nonsense facilitators at Lost & Found held our annual tradition of egg rolling down Primrose Hill.
Egg Roll was six years old this April and we celebrated its birthday and mine by getting out our famous water slide out as well. I compered the competitions and games which were all free fun so that anyone can turn and play.
What’s this silliness all about then?
Egg Roll is just Lost & Found’s way of giving back some free fun to the community. It’s the prefect ‘egg-cuse’ for a day out and a reason to dress up. Each year we run a competition for the best dressed egg and people decorate their eggs in the most elaborate way as possible. The competition gets more and more fierce each year with people really going to town, building full sets and backdrops for their little eggs. Bless.
As well as dressing up the eggs, people make the effort wearing Spring related costume. We then host egg rolling races for adults and kids, a three-legged race and egg and spoon.
After we have ‘egghausted’ all the egg puns we get out the water slide and throw ourselves down the hill in honour of those brave eggs that got scrambled. Thanks for all that came and joined us on such a wonderful day, I hope you had fun and we will see you next year. Also special thanks to Jim Hanner and Alex Simmons for the photos. Egg x
