MALVERN tots had an egg-cellent time when they went hunting for Easter eggs around Malvern Link Common .

Over 100 youngsters who attend children's centres in Malvern and Upton took part in the traditional Easter egg hunt in the wooded area of the common.

The children also enjoyed other Easter-themed activities and were thrilled when the Easter bunny dropped into to say hello.

Sarah Walton of Action for Children, which operated the centres, said: “The morning was packed full of family fun activities and gave families the chance to enjoy the outdoors together.

“It was a great day all round and the children loved running around the woods following the Easter egg trail.

“Thank you to everyone who attended for being such good fun, and to Cooperative Supermarkets and Funeral Care for kindly donating the Easter eggs.”

The three centres, Evergreen and Sunshine in Malvern and Riverboats in Upton, work at the heart of the local community offering advice and support on a wide range of issues.
