A huge amount of chocolate has been enjoyed by Weston-super-Mare children – but some of them had to go to a little extra effort to get their treats.

Easter egg hunts took place in and around the town, with youngsters following clues to track down their treats.

Children also designed some stunning Easter bonnets, with schools hosting parades before breaking up for the holidays.

Businesses proved Easter is also a time for giving, as Combi Care provided more than 60 chocolate eggs to children at Baytree School.

Students in the Priory Learning Trust have been taking trips to the Grand Pier, as 4,000 passes for free entry and discounts were given out just before the Easter holidays started.
