Easter baskets filled with chocolate treats have been assembled, the bunny ears are firmly on and egg hunts are in place ready for thousands of excited children in the town and surrounding villages.

Online church services are being streamed to mark the special day.

Some villages have even dressed their windows to depict various scenes related to the season.

Claire Crisp, who lives in Woodford Halse, supplied treats for children in her village.

She said: "There's 24 bags of chocolate treats on our bench for anyone who would like to but is unable to give their little ones a treat."

Celebrating the day in West Haddon will be Caitlin Farey, 11, and her family.

Pictured is her pony, Crystal, in her bunny ears.

Easter is a Christian holiday that has been observed since the 2nd century as a way to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Over the years, many Easter traditions have taken shape, everything from chocolate bunnies to Easter themed trees.
