Hundreds of chocolate hounds turned out for the annual Easter Egg hunt at Kedington’s Great Meadow on Good Friday.

The 34th staging of the traditional Good Friday hunt was run by the Haverhill branch of the Ipswich Town Supporters Club and attracted 400 people, all hoping for a slice of the chocolate action.

When the clock struck 2pm a mass charge ensued across the meadow and the eggs were quickly found.

The biggest prize of the day, the golden egg, was claimed by four-year-old Olivia Dyson and the first of seven special large eggs up for grabs was found by Debbie Saunders.

In addition 600 cream eggs were also bagged by those who found the wooden blocks scattered around the meadow.

Two Easter Bunnies also turned up, courtesy of one of the sponsors, Peter Brown, aka Peter the Painter, to help increase the fun.

The organisers thanked everyone who volunteered from the branch to make the day a success, all those who donated raffle prizes and Lynne Dale for baking a special cake shaped like a football pitch, which was also raffled off.

They also thanked Kedington Newsagents for donating mini eggs and Peter Brown.
