Easter Monday: Eggs & hare pie scrambling

Hallaton’s Hare Pie Scrambling

Easter is just starting. Even the Book Common Prayer has a collect and readings for Easter Monday and Easter Tuesday.

The weather is good for egg rolling in Preston’s Avenham Park which has been an Easter custom there since 1867.

Meanwhile at Hallaton in Leicestershire the annual Easter Hare Pie scrambling and bottle kicking on Hare Pie Bank starts in the village church at 11am. This custom dates back at least 800 years to just after Magna Carta.
