EASTER holidays got into full swing over the weekend as children hunted for hidden treasures.

Waterperry Gardens, near Wheatley, and Albert Park in Abingdon hosted activities at the start of the school holiday.

At Albert Park events included an egg-and-spoon race, tug-of-war, football and a bunny hunt.

The event, at Abingdon Vineyard Church, has taken place each Easter for six years.

Families at Waterperry Gardens could search for Easter rabbits hidden in the grounds and if eight were found, children could claim a chocolate surprise.

Headington’s Jake Dobbins, eight, and sister Anna, five, found eight out of the 10 hidden animals.

Jake, who went with mum Ellie, said: “My favourite bit was finding the bunnies.

“I found it quite exciting that we actually managed to find them.

“They were quite high up so it was quite difficult.”

Anna said: “I liked finding the bunnies with my brother.”

At Albert Park, Anthony Hopgood of Geoffrey Barbour Road, Abingdon, took children, Leo, eight, and Sofia, five.
