The first community Easter egg hunt in Gorleston got off to a cracking start on Saturday with hundreds of people turning out for the event.
The streets of the Magdalen Estate were packed as people scoured the vicinity for colourful laminated eggs.
The event was organised by St Mary Magdalene Church and participants began their quest at the church hall, armed with trail guides and pencils.
After an exhaustive search, hunters regathered at the church to refuel on hard-earned chocolate eggs and hot cross buns.
Rev Matthew Price, minister of St Mary Magdalene church, said: “We were just delighted with the response. The weather was kind to us and everyone seemed to have a fun afternoon.
“There was a very real sense of community and it was wonderful to hear how participants had enjoyed being out and about with others from their community and the camaraderie they had enjoyed whilst hunting for eggs.”
