Hundreds of excited youngsters and their families made the most of the Easter break by heading down to a historic home for some egg-themed fun.

Rainham Hall welcomed adults and children from across the community to its annual Cadbury Egg Hunt, which ran from Good Friday to Easter Monday.

Families visiting the Georgian home, in Broadway, Rainham, roamed its grounds while searching for clues, with their reward delicious Cadbury treats.

Creative programme manager Sally James said: “Rainham Hall welcomed hundreds of children at Easter for their annual Cadbury Egg Hunt, with 400 youngsters joining us on Good Friday.

“It’s wonderful to see families together exploring our beautiful community gardens and enjoying themselves during the pursuit of egg-shaped clues.

“It’s great fun and every penny raised helps to support this special National Trust property.

“The gardens including our Stables Café are free to visit all year around, Wednesday to Sunday, and we encourage the people of Havering to make the most of this urban gem.”
