It’s egg-citement all round as care home hosts annual village Easter Egg hunt

WORTHING / AGILITYPR.NEWS / March 27, 2024 / Hundreds of people turned out to enjoy an eggs-cellent Easter-themed community event hosted by a Worthing care home to mark the start of the holidays. 

Caring Homes’ Tarring Manor Care Home welcomed nearly 300 smiling faces as it played host to the village’s annual Easter egg hunt on Palm Sunday, 24th March, in conjunction with the Friends of Tarring Park and Tarring Rotary Club.

In addition to the egg hunt, families also took part in an Easter bonnet competition, judged by Tarring Manor resident Mary Mills, who modelled her own stunning bonnet. 

The level of entries was incredibly high, with 14 prizes given out for artistry and effort.

Mary said: “I was honoured and delighted to help out. Seeing so many smiling faces from the children and their families and it being such a sunny bright morning made my weekend. I was also given an Easter Egg for helping, which was so nice.”

The event also saw Easter Egg vouchers hidden around Tarring Manor’s extensive and beautiful gardens, stalls containing Easter Cards and merchandise and even ice cream to make the most of the spring sunshine. 


Councillor Hazel Thorpe, a committee member of the Friends of Tarring Manor said the home’s garden space offered the perfect venue for this year’s hunt. She said: “The home provided a fantastic space for us, particularly with the park being so wet this year, after so much rain.”

Tarring Manor Care Home opened in October 2023 in the heart of Tarring village and backs onto Tarring Park.

Since opening, the care home has been keen to cement itself as part of the community, partnering with local organisations and community groups, such as the Friends of Tarring Park. 

Conrad Bool, customer relations manager at Tarring Manor said: “Our relationship with the Friends of Tarring Park is a very important working relationship for us and we try to help them out as much as we can. 

“We are delighted to have developed a fantastic rapport. It also helps, on a personal basis, that I like them all individually very much. It is one of the most effective and friendly Residents’ Associations that I have witnessed.”
