It was all aboard for the pirate trail around The Gardens of Easton Lodge last weekend.

Children had to follow clues to complete their challenge and win treasure from the pirate chief, which included chocolate crispy cakes and stickers.

Trustee Sue Gilbert said: “We know that parents can struggle to find affordable entertainment for their children over the long summer holidays, so we decided to lay on something to help.”

She said that all the volunteers had practiced their “best pirate voices”.

They were selling sandwiches on the gate, which were sold out by the end of the day.

Helen Carter, trust administrator at the gardens, added: “It went well and the kids that did come had a lovely time, they ran around the garden, the volunteers dressed up, and there were loads of stuff for them to have fun.

“The adults had a nice time as well, it’s a good day for families because we don’t charge very much for children to come in.”
