There were no hiding places when families hit the Easter egg trails held in the Skegness area over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Community group Live and Learn kicked off the fun on Good Friday with an Easter egg hunt in Tower Gardens.

This was the first of a series of event by the local volunteers to entertain visitors and residents.

On Saturday, they held an Easter bonnet parade, on Easter Sunday an outdoor service and open mic event and on Bank Holiday Monday a community event.

The Village Church Farm museum in Skegness was one of a number of attractions holding Easter trails over the weekend, with others taking place at Fantasy Island and Hardy’s Animal Farm in Ingoldmells,

An Easter Egg-stavaganza was held at the WI Hall in Burgh-le-Marsh, on Saturday, with an Easter egg trail later in the morning at Burgh-le-Marsh Baptist Church,
