There were plenty of smiles in evidence on Monday as families took part in the annual Easter Hunt at Daventry Country Park.

Children took advantage of the brilliant sunshine to take part in an Eggsplorer Trail as well as a bonnet competition sponsored by Daventry Town Council.

Competition winners were: Dylan Walsh, Cyran Davies, Bethany Beezhold, Morgan Lindley and Amelia Roys.

Gemma Cooper, community projects officer at DDC, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who supported the event, including The Friends of Daventry Country Park, Daventry Town Council and the Mayor of Daventry, Councillor Ron Fox.”
