Children soaked up the Easter atmosphere in Bradford on Avon on Saturday by taking part in activities run by the Chamber of Commerce.

Mayor John Potter joined competitors in the egg and spoon race, which saw children race across Lamb Yard with their individually decorated boiled eggs to be in with the chance of winning a lolly.

Jazz band The Mondays performed outside The Swan Hotel and there was an Easter bonnet competition and parade in The Olive Tree.

Jackie Allan, of Piha Ski and Surf Wear, helped organise the race and said: “It was all very jolly.

“Wiltshire Farmer’s Market had a pop-up market and Made in Bradford on Avon had their new Saturday Market, so lots of people were out enjoying the atmosphere.”
