Funds raised from the day will go to the High Easter Village Hall Fund and The High Easter Senior Residents Club, who will receive £234.35 each.

After the hunt, participants returned to the village hall for refreshments served by Janice Green and her helpers.

Organiser Brian Hockley said: “Rose Parnell made a wonderful Easter chocolate bouquet for raffle which raised £68. Thanks must also go to Sara and Lucy at the Snug Café for collecting bookings for the hunt, Wiltshire Farm Foods for the use of a van for getting the eggs to High Easter, Kevin and Steve for putting the 32 crates, full of eggs in the shade and Ed Gray who once did a grand job being the Easter Chick.”
