The Saffron Walden Round Table Easter Egg Hunt at Bridge End Gardens in the town was declared a “cracking success” by organiser Roy Mason.

He said: “To have over 150 children take part in the competition makes it all worthwhile, especially with the weather forecast. We want to thank the parents for supporting the community event.”

Before the end of term, children at Debden Church of England Primary School took part in their annual egg decorating competition.

Headteacher, Louise Gurney said: “There were many wonderful entries and all the children are to be congratulated on their efforts. The winners won chocolate eggs supplied by the Friends of Debden School. We all had a wonderful time.”

At R A Butler Academy, all the children took part in a giant Easter treasure hunt on the last day of term. Organised by FoRAB (Friends of R A Butler), the school’s parents association, the children hunted for letter clues around the school grounds to make up Easter inspired words and phrases.

All the children received a bag of chocolate coins as a prize.
