Genasa Mitchell , who went along with her daughter Larissa, said: “I saw about the Easter trail in the paper and thought it sounded like a great idea to get out of the house to do something fun. The stilt walkers and jugglers are amazing too, brilliant fun!”

Mum-of-four Katie Lissenden said: “It was really good fun for the kids. We’ve just been bowling and now the kids have all had their faces painted and look amazing. Brilliant for Bexleyheath.”

Peter Sedge, General Manager at Broadway Shopping Centre said: “Easter is always a busy weekend for our retailers and we expect to see an increased footfall.

“We were pleased to offer some free entertainment to families as an extra special treat as they enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend.”
