From the 30th March and throughout April, large knitted Easter Chicks can be found perched in participating shops and business windows throughout East and West Didsbury.

The Francis House Great Didsbury Chick Hunt challenge is to find them all!

Track down all 25 chicks by following a route and answering a simple question to win an Easter prize.

Restaurants, cafes, shoe shop, estate agents, opticians, cheese shop and even a butchers throughout Didsbury, will become a safe place to roost for our Francis House chicks.

Special thanks to our supporters Towers Business Park, Hobbycraft and to all the Didsbury Traders for hosting chicks.

“It’s brilliant to be involved in the Easter Chick Hunt in support of Francis House. We love our chick and are delighted to host him in our shop window.”

Mary Wheildon, Wheildon Butchers
