A MUCH-loved family treasure hunt will commemorate our fallen heroes and mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The Hunt for Heroes challenge takes place at Eastnor Castle, near Ledbury, from Friday to Monday, April 18-21, between 11am and 4.30pm each day.

Search for the brave bunnies and chickens around the castle and picturesque grounds, solve the clues and be in with a chance of being the lucky winner of a giant chocolate egg.

The castle's general manager, David Littlewood, said: “This is our favourite weekend of the year, where local families come to Eastnor Castle to enjoy the annual treasure hunt and this year we are going back in time to World War One."

Every child taking part in the Easter Hunt for Heroes will win a chocolate treat and there will be a draw at the end of each day when one lucky family will win a giant chocolate egg in a basket.

In addition, the Knight’s maze, Burma Bridge tree top walkway, junior assault course, castle shop and tearoom will also be open throughout the weekend.
