Dozens of decorated Easter Eggs made by local schoolchildren will go on display at the Caister Lifeboat Experience this weekend.

Pupils at Caister Infants School, Caister Junior School and Alderman Swindell Primary in Great Yarmouth have created eggs with a wide range of themes on them which will be displayed throughout the shed.

The charity’s annual Easter Egg Hunt is being held from Good Friday to Easter Monday, where participants find a trail of letters to crack a code to win a chocolate treat.

And this year there’s a chance to upgrade the prize of a Cadbury’s Creme Egg to a larger egg in a new game.

Andrew Turner, who has organised the event, says they’ve been well supported by local schools and businesses.

“As well as the children from three schools making an amazing collection of brightly painted Easter eggs, we’ve also been given loads of chocolate eggs.

“Tesco and the Co-op have given us dozens of large chocolate eggs as prizes, so we’ve decided to make a game where children can try to win a larger chocolate prize!”

As well as the Easter Egg Hunt, which runs from 10am to 3.30pm on each day over the bank holiday weekend, around 200 dune runners are due to compete the Nelson Knee Knobbler - a 5k and 10k race on Caister Beach.

“It’s going to be quite a busy weekend for us,” said Mr Turner. “But we’ve also got a whole set of displays and videos which will go on show in the Caister Lifeboat Experience for the first time - so there’s lots to come and see for all the family.”
