Schools and community groups had a cracking time at a range of egg-cellent Easter themed events.

The Friends of Rastrick Library held a spring craft fair to help raise money for a new access ramp at the library premises.

The fair was packed with stalls selling handmade crafts, blankets and knitted items and Brighouse-based Love Bread sold a range of baked goods.

Children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt, an Easter bonnet competition and fun crafts kept the little ones entertained throughout the afternoon.

Samantha Broadhurst, library assistant, said: “Everybody enjoyed themselves and had a really good day.”

The fair managed to raise a total of £150.

This will now go towards a feasibility study for the installation of a new ramp to make the library accessible to as many people as possible.

Children from Lightcliffe Pre-School performed an Easter parade at a coffee morning at Christ Church, Hipperholme.

The 12 children took part in an Easter bonnet competition and performed songs for parents and visitors.

Families and guests gathered at the William Henry Smith School in Brighouse for its fun-filled Easter Fayre.

School principal Brendan Heneghan opened the event with the cracking of a large Easter egg.

Pupils entertained guests with a trampolining and gymnastics display before they moved outside to have a look around the many stalls.

There were also lots of activities on offer including welly throwing and go karting.

A French themed cafe served refreshments and music was provided by Phoenix Radio with the school’s own Jack Hewitt mixing the tracks.
