CHILDREN and businesses across the Daventry area have joined together to celebrate Easter in a variety of ways.

Hankook Tyres’ Daventry headquarters in the Heartlands, donated over 300 Easter Eggs to be divided between the NSPCC, local children’s homes and SureStart Children’s Centre in Daventry.

The donation from the staff and company has become an annual tradition.

Chairman for the SureStart Core Group Natalie Simms said: “The kids are all very grateful to Hankook and really excited.

“It’s great to be able to give Easter eggs to those who are less fortunate and cannot afford to buy them.

“I’m sure all the children will really enjoy them!”

At Badby children were set the task of decorating bonnets. Office administrator Charlotte Shaw said: “There were lots of flowers, ribbons and of course chicks. They were judged in their year group in our assembly by the chairman of our governors.”

While at Daventry’s Playhouse Nursery children also worked to create some seasonal headwear for the preschool’s annual competition with the end results being judged on Thursday last week.

And in Dodford Thursday also saw toddlers, children and parents head out from the Holborn House Day Nursery for an Easter egg hunt around the village centre.
