Mums, dads, grandparents and hundreds of youngsters, many wearing Easter bunny ears and bonnets, scoured Sparrow's Nest gardens in search of vital hints needed to secure one of the 550 Easter egg prizes on offer.

Ali Gillings, 39, from Lowestoft, said: 'It has been really good fun. It's the first time we have been and we have all really enjoyed it.

'The children have been able to answer all the questions, which has been good, although their dad might have enjoyed it a little more than they did- he has become quite competitive!'

She added: 'I think events like this help boost community spirit and it's nice to get people out and about - especially doing something like this which is physical. We will definitely be coming again next year!'

Each child, participating in the egg trail, was required to correctly complete a quiz sheet using clues they discovered on the trail before their quiz sheet could be exchanged for a fantastic Easter egg treat.

As well as the ever popular free Easter egg trail attendees were able to enjoy a range of rides, stalls and a road show by children's entertainers K-Syl-R at the event, held on Easter Sunday.
