RESIDENTS on a Thackley estate have taken part in a social distancing Easter egg hunt.

Families on the Cote Farm estate have taken part in the fun event, organised by Jemma Walker.

It is an egg hunt for the children that didn’t involve any contact.

A total of 50 homes on the estate have displayed an egg with a number on in their windows.

Children were safely given an answer sheet and during their hourly days exercise they have gone out in search of eggs.

The majority of the community has got involved with 130 hunters taking part.

Neighbours have generously donated eggs and everyone that takes part will receive one.

As the hunt is coming to a close the Easter bunny is safely delivering the prizes to the door steps of the children involved.

Katie Smith, who took part in the hunt with her children, Dexter, six, and Charlie Brown, three, said: “It’s boosted community spirit and got everyone out and active.

“It has been great seeing all the families out hunting.

“With two children myself it has been a great way to keep them motivated on our daily hours exercise.

“Most of all in a time of uncertainty it has kept a little bit of normality for the children of Cote Farm.”
