Families had a cracking time at an Easter event in Hayton, which raised hundreds of pounds for the village hall.

Hayton’s eighth annual Easter Fair and Egg Hunt, at the village hall, attracted a good turnout. There were 81 eggs hidden around Hayton for people to find, with the Kelly family winning first prize after finding 77 of the eggs.

Caroline Wagstaff, an organiser of the event, said: “We normally only get about 50. They did absolutely brilliant.”
A decorated egg competition was held, as well as a number of challenges and games.

The event made a profit of £321, which will go towards Hayton Village Hall.

Mrs Wagstaff added: “It was tremendous. Quite a lot of people took part in the egg hunt.

“Thank you to all the sponsors.”

In addition, a pig race night was recently held at the village hall, which made a profit of £590 for the building.
