Dozens of children were treated to an ‘eggstra-special’ Easter treasure hunt this weekend, as part of an event that raised £250 for charity.

Polly Durrant, owner of the Ramsholt Arms near Woodbridge, opened her home to Easter fanatics for the sixth year running on Saturday, March 31.

Roughly 55 children took part in the treasure hunt – which involved completing a number of quirky challenges in order to collect chocolate-themed prizes.

Ms Durrant said: “They each get given a painted egg box and they have to go on a treasure hunt around the garden.

“The Easter Bunny comes out and everyone gets a prize. Then the winners of two challeges get a medal.”
