There were Easter egg hunts right across Uckfield during the holiday.

More than 30 children enjoyed the Church Coombe Community Association’s hunt at Downland Copse organised by youth group leader Val West.

Manor Park and Hempstead Field Residents’ Association’s hunt was at the Hempstead Fields Playpark where families enjoyed hunting for eggs and answering the quiz questions to win a chocolate egg.

All proceeds went to Demelza Hospice Care for Children and chairman Paul Sparks thanked families for taking part.

On Good Friday more than 100 children met the Easter Bunny for a hunt in aid of the Rockinghorse Fund organised by Dawson Hart Solicitors at Uckfield Rugby Club.

Staff and friends served refreshments while children enjoyed a bouncy castle, face painting and crafts. Kids Stuff, Uckfield Candy Store, Final Score Sports, Poppins, Waitrose and The Picture House made the tombola a success.
