PEOPLE of all ages came together to celebrate Easter by joining in a host of fun activities.

Hartfields Retirement Village, in Middle Warren, in Hartlepool, opened its doors to the community for the event.

Residents and outside charities held stalls to boost their activities and children showed off their artistic talents by decorating eggs and ginger bread men.

And youngsters hunted for hidden chocolate eggs that had been hidden around the garden.

Emma Wheetman, Hartfields’ community activities co-ordinator, said: “It went really well. Plenty of people came in throughout the day.

“Residents who had stalls raised money to keep their activities going and the kids’ activities went down really well.

“The Easter egg hunt was particularly popular and it was lovely to see the children running around in the garden.”

Staff also held a stall in aid of the Chernobyl Children’s Project.

Residents raised money towards the running of their choir, garden group and entertainment committee.
