YOUNG and old alike were in seasonal spirit this week at a trio of Easter bonnet events in Reporter country.

On Friday, pupils at Katherine Semar Infant School and Great Sampford Primary School paraded their colourful headwear.

And residents at Hanover Housing Association's Elm Grove sheltered housing scheme in Saffron Walden showed off their handmade hats on Monday.

Elm Grove's estate manager, Janet Webb, said: "The day went really well and the five ladies who took part had fun and a good laugh.

"They all made their hats themselves and everyone got an Easter egg.

"Malcolm Domb, branch manager of Waitrose in

Saffron Walden, came to judge the hats and Doreen Keen was the winner."

Great Sampford Primary's IT Coordinator, Heather Lander, said the children had fun and took part in an Easter egg hunt after the parade. "Almost every child in the school entered this event, either making their Easter bonnet from scratch or by reworking an existing hat into a marvellous Easter creation," she said.

"We are always staggered by the amount of effort the children put into designing their hats.
