Buchan youngsters had lots of fun last weekend by taking part in Easter Egg Hunts across the area.

Strichen Playgroup held their annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 5 at Strichen Lake.

As well as an egg hunt through Strichen Community Park there was a scavenger hunt, fun pet show, decorated Easter bonnet and egg competitions, and various stalls to keep everyone of all ages entertained.

Meanwhile the annual Aden Easter Egg Hunt took place on the same day.

The Aden Country Park Easter Egg Hunt started at the courtyard and saw participants head through the woodlands and the park’s green spaces to find lots of tasty treats.

There was also plenty of fun family activities including a giant bouncy slide, colouring competitions, storytelling and plenty of prizes on offer.
