A ripe selection of local produce was on offer at Letchworth’s monthly farmers’ market, from meat and seasoned vegetables, to beer and ciders.

The market had a special visitor in the form of Pudsey Bear, whose visit to the town was arranged by Lloyds Bank in Station Road, who chose Children in Need as its charity of the year.

The mascot made the rounds by visiting Eastcheap, Cuthberts, Arena Parade and the Garden Square Shopping Centre.

After an Easter egg hunt through the town, Pudsey picked the winner of the Easter basket in the afternoon, with the prestigious accolade going to Kathryn Mary Clampitt.
