Saturday, 3rd April 2010
On Saturday, 3rd April 2010 we held an Easter Family Fun day, hopefully the first of many such events. We wanted to show the people of Driffield and surrounding villages that Sokells was still very much part of the community and that after a short transitional period restocking is well on its way and ready to turn the business back in to the success it used to be.

Although the weather wasn't very kind to us, the atmosphere in the store managed to brighten our spirits. Our fun day started off with a visit from John Spencer to give us a taste of some of his wonderful children's books. Then came what turned out to be the biggest hit of the day, a visit from 2 children's favourites who were happy to pose for pictures with kids (young and old) as well as sitting down to listen to another exciting story by John Spencer. The fun event then ended with a final flourish with the Easter egg hunt which had customers and staff alike running around the store hunting out paper eggs to swap for a special prize!

In between all these fun events, children were invited to take part in a colouring competition where they were asked to colour in and design their own easter eggs. We had lots of excellent entries and too many to choose just one so we awarded an Easter egg to the seven best entries. The 'Name the Bear' competition also had dozens of entries and the winning name of 'Jethro' (don't ask) was won by Jennifer Potter.
