CHILDREN from the kindergarten at St Mary?s School in Henley took part in an Easter egg hunt at Swiss Farm in Marlow Road.

Joseph and Erika Borlase, who own the land, invited the pupils as their four-year-old daughter Olivia attends the school in St Andrew?s Road.

Ruth Peters, head of early years, said: ?The children really enjoyed it. They had some hot chocolate and took part in some craft activities.?

Mrs Borlase said: ?It was lovely for the children to come here and run around in the fresh air.?

An Easter raffle and cake sale held at the Co-op in Sonning Common raised more than £400 for the Carers Trust, the supermarket chain?s charity of the year.

Staff wore yellow to represent spring flowers.

Team manager Martin Jex said: ?We would like to thank all our customers for their generous donations.?

Residents of Watlington and District nursing home hosted an Easter egg hunt and bonnet-making competition for children, friends and families.

Liza Simon, the home?s activities leader, said: ?Our residents love being joined by members of the local community and having children visit puts a smile on everyone?s face.

?Despite the chilly weather, residents and visitors had a wonderful afternoon celebrating Easter and springtime, making beautiful bonnets and hunting for delicious chocolate treats around the home and grounds.?
