The event on Saturday, held by the parent-teacher association at Mary Exton Primary School, featured the Easter bunny and live animals including goats, rabbits, a tortoise, a hedgehog and a hairless guinea pig.

Just under £1,000 was raised, which will go towards rejuvenating the library at the St Michael’s Road school.

Sarah Daly from the organising team said: “It was really fantastic to see so many families come along to the Eggstravaganza, despite the wet weather.”

Activities included an indoor Easter egg hunt, craft activities involving egg decorating and egg maracas, guessing the name of the bunny and making spaghetti-and-marshmallow towers to hold chocolate eggs.
