YOUNGSTERS were rewarded for their eggs-tra-ordinary Easter creations.
St Aidan’s Primary School, in Loyalty Road, Hartlepool, held an Easter egg competition in conjunction with the Co-operative Funeralcare, at Strathmore House.
Youngsters at the school decorated boiled eggs with their own eye-catching designs, based on storybook characters.
A winner was picked from each of the school’s 10 classes, as well as the school’s two nursery classes.
The winners were Laura Gardner, Tyler Thompson, Jamie Brown, Lauren Stamp, Olivia Gray, Joe Cosgrave, David Elliott-Wetherill, Katie Day, Adam Wallace and Eve Hogg, with Tilly Burey and Thomas Rowbotham chosen from the nursery.
Designs included Incy Wincy Spider, The Cat In The Hat, Rapunzel and Jack And The Beanstalk.
The children were presented with chocolate eggs for their efforts.
Chocolate eggs were also presented to 38 runners-up.
The designs were judged by Mark Evans, principal funeral director at Stockton Road-based Strathmore House, and funeral director Steve Laughton, with help from school headteacher Ian Railton.
Mr Evans said: “It was very hard to judge the designs and there were a lot of entries.
“The children have worked really hard.
“It was really good to take part in the event as part of our ongoing community activities.”
