Children looked under trees, over walls and around corners ticking their findings off a list in order to claim a delicious Easter egg at Rainham Hall Gardens.

The varied gardens were the perfect place for the hunt this weekend and about 500 children took part.

Each child was given an A-Z list of things to find.

Once they’d found them all and checked each one from the list they were able to claim a delicious Cadbury chocolate egg.

The egg hunt was the first of its kind to be sponsored by chocolate giant Cadbury.

Sally James, creative programme manager at the hall, said the event went exceedingly well despite space being limited due to repairs being completed in the hall.

She also said everyone who took part had a great time, made better by it being a local event that families did not have to travel far to take part in.
