n MADNESS was all around Weston on Sunday as the town’s Easter holiday came to an end.

A Mad Hatter’s tea party was held at the Sovereign Shopping Centre on Sunday afternoon as part of Weston BID’s Easter events programme.

His series of unanswerable riddles and nonsensical poetry made for an exciting afternoon at the shopping centre.

The BID team organised several shows across the Easter period designed to keep the children entertained during their break from school.
