Families were egg-cited when the sun came out for the community’s annual Easter event.
A record-number of people attended the Highview Residents’ Association’s Easter-themed day in Collier Row at the weekend, despite having to hold the event under a marquee due to work starting on the new community centre at Highfield Tower.
Families enjoyed making Easter masks, decorating cupcakes and children having their faces painted while their parents relaxed in the sunshine.
Deputy leader and cabinet member for housing Cllr Damian White, said: “It’s fantastic to see how this community in Collier Row came together to celebrate Easter with this family event.
“I am pleased it has been such a success and am sure that when next year’s event is held in the new community centre it will prove even more popular.”
