Will the Easter Bunny still come?

I asked this on our facebook page and you will all pleased to know that the answer is YES.

My daughter asked me this question today… Mum, as we are are being told we are not allowed to visit people, does that mean the Easter bunny , won’t be able to visit this year to deliver the Easter eggs ?

Michelle Rusbridge They are magical so we will still get our chocolate!

Sophie Parker Technically the bunny’s an animal, and they can still hop about freely

Stephanie Hayes-Akinjobi Easter bunny is immune to CV

Becca Carter Animals cant catch the virus so he can come.

Andrew Down Animals go by different rules … cats, rabbits, foxes birds etc can still go where they like as they arent affected by the virus.

Lenie Stepney as the Easter Bunny isn’t human, then he will make it on Easter…
