An Easter hunt is underway in Portishead, giving youngsters the chance to explore the town in search of prizes.

An Easter trail has been created in the town centre which encourages families to walk from store to store, in search of paper eggs in shop windows.

Children are tasked with finding as many eggs as possible, with winners set to receive a prize ranging from chocolate treats to days out.

Entry forms are available from SoleLution, in High Street, for £1 – with funds raised set to help vulnerable children in Africa.

The shop’s owner, Tanya Marriott, is a keen supporter of the Jolaurabi School in Kenya, having donated hundreds of pairs of shoes earlier this year – and she called on people to take part.

She said: “It is hoped the trail will provide hours of family fun, while also promoting local businesses.”

The competition ends on April 22.
