Scores of people had fun hunting for clues round Shoreham town centre and the farmers’ market in a free Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning.

Families had to find the clues on giant card eggs, which East Street shopkeepers had agreed to put in their windows.

They then had to fill in the answers and take their completed forms back to Shoreham Baptist Church, in Western Road.

Everyone returning a form was given a free crème Easter egg, plus drinks and hot cross buns.

All the forms then went into a hat, from which a name was drawn to win a giant chocolate Easter egg.

Children were also able to enjoy taking part in some craft activities, including making Easter baskets and doing scratch art Easter eggs at the church, while their parents enjoyed a welcome sit down and a cuppa.

Nick Hough, one of the organisers, said: “The event, which once again proved really popular with families, has become part of the church’s annual events programme, together with the Big Bounce, Harvest supper and Christmas treasure hunt to mark the major Christian festivals.”

The Maundy Thursday communion will be at 8pm and Good Friday service will be at 10.30am.

Details of future events can be found on the church website at www.shorehambaptist.co.uk or by calling 01273 965407.

These include the next Donkey Tales service, a free family event with stories, songs, puppets, craft and cakes, taking place on Sunday, April 17, at 3.30pm.
