A HOST of seasonal events went with a swing over the Easter bank holiday weekend.
In Ryhope, more than 100 young people took part in an Easter egg hunt.
The event, which began and finished at St Paul’s Church, was hosted by Ryhope Community Spirit.
It’s one in a number of community events being held to raise money for a Christmas tree, due to be erected on the village green in December.
The community group brought back the tradition last year, and it proved hugely popular. In early December, more than 1,000 residents turned out to see the tree lit up.
Yesterday’s event also featured an Easter bonnet parade.
In Northumberland, Easter bunny Dawn Ridley, 44, of the Chester-le-Street Easyriders motorbike club, was among more than 1,000 bikers at the Amble lunch stop on the Blyth Valley Motorcycle Action Group’s annual Easter egg run.
