Hundreds of youngsters searched for Easter eggs in the sun at North Walsham's charity Easter egg hunt.
The fun day at the town's Memorial Park saw 350 children take part in a 23-egg trail, as well as face painting, balloon modelling, and a special meet-and-greet with the Easter Bunny.
The event, which was held for the third year on Easter Saturday, organised by the community charity North Walsham Play, raised £1589.42, which will go towards improving the play provision in the town.
Matthew Smith, North Walsham Play's founder, thanked everyone who took part.
He said: 'The amazing weather is a perfect background for another very successful egg hunt, supported by so many people from within the local community.

Mr Smith said he wanted to thank the North Walsham Community Shop, the town's Costa Coffee, Sainsbury's, The Atrium Cinema and Starboard for their donations towards the event.
