CHILDREN welcomed the Easter Bunny with his basket full of eggs at a special play session held at a city children’s centre.
Youngsters and their mums and dads flocked to the holiday event at the Low Edges centre on Gresley Road, one of several to be held over the two-week break.
The children wore hats which they decorated themselves with eggs and other seasonal motifs, and made the most of all the centre’s play equipment.
“We don’t open the centre out of term time but we do organise a series of play sessions to keep the youngsters busy,” said a spokeswoman.
“One of the volunteers wore the bunny costume and was a big hit with his chocolate eggs, as you’d imagine,” she added.
Meanwhile, pupils at Ashdell Prep School in Broomhill kept up a long standing tradition by holding their annual Easter flower parade and bonnet competition.
To coincide with a special spring assembly, the children were asked to make bonnets and hats with an animal theme.
Winning bonnets were selected from each year group, and were made by Robyn Wilson-Barratt, Beatrix Larvin and Nancy Strong.
“This is always a great event and is enjoyed by everyone in the school,” said Rachael Leslie, who is head of Ashdell’s pre-prep department.
