Hats off to bonnet winners

Pupils from Gedney Church End primary School can expect a few extra treats and things to do following the big success of an EggStravaganza put on by parents and friends (FOGS).

The event at Victory Hall, Gedney, raised almost £300.

One of the highlights was an Easter Parade, where youngsters wore bonnets or crowns.

The competition was judged by the Rev Erica Crust and Astrid Appleton, founder of Knit and Natter, which meets at Long Sutton Library on Thursday afternoons.

Astrid said: “It was very difficult to judge winners as so much work had gone into the hats.”

Activities on the day included an Easter treasure hunt, skittles, face and nail painting, a tombola and a barbecue.

Volunteers baked a vast array of cakes and there was also a tuck shop. Photo: Sophie Currell
