An Easter egg hunt for all the family is being held at Lilac Lodge and Lavender Cottage care home in Oulton Broad.

The free event on Easter Sunday, April 1, will include face painting and glitter tattoos for children and music from the local shanty group, Lowestoft Longshoremen.

The mobile petting zoo, Zoo-Tastic, will be paying a visit, enabling both visitors and residents to have a close-up encounter with a variety of animals.

Free hot and cold drinks and cakes will be provided and there will be a raffle raising money for the residents' fund.

Residents at the Kingsley Healthcare run home were this week painting polystyrene eggs which will be hidden for the egg hunt and children will then be able to swap them for chocolate eggs.

Lilac Lodge manager Zena Stotter said: 'Our Easter egg hunt is always a popular event and our residents love to invite families into their home and garden.

'The event will be free but there will be a donation box if anyone wants to support our residents' fund which pays for extra activities and events.'
