CHILDREN were asked to find 26 places where the Easter bunny might be hiding to be in with the chance of winning a chunky chocolate egg.

The Easter egg hunt, which asked children to solve the clues and find the 26 hiding places was organised by Thorntons in Huntingdon High Street.

Some of the clues included don't get in a spin, which was a washing machine and dad likes to potty here, which was a shed.

Participating children also had to draw a picture of an Easter bunny and hand it back to the chocolate shop.

The two winners, Holly Tuck aged four and Grace Bowland aged eight, both of Brampton, were given a chucky chocolate Thorntons Easter egg. Everyone who took part was given a bag of mini Thorntons chocolate eggs.

Shop assistant Amy Wilson, who helped the manager of Thorntons Kim Williams to co-ordinate the hunt, said: "This is the first time we have held such an event and all the children seemed to really like it and got really excited when they were given a chocolate treat.
