Families enjoy Easter trails in Oakham, Langtoft and Market Deeping

Families trailed the streets of towns and villages searching for giant carrots and hidden bunnies.

The Easter weekend provided plenty of opportunities for families to spend quality time together outdoors - many of them supporting good causes.

Among the activities on offer was a trail around Langtoft organised by volunteers from the village primary school.

Twenty-seven giant carrots were dotted around the village with a map to show where they could be found.

Jack Barton, from the Friends of Langtoft School, said: "We want to thank the whole village for getting behind this event. I think it has been a huge success and wonderful to see the buzz of activity around the village.

"Thank you to our carrot maker Richard Garford, our carrot holders and to those that decorated their gardens.

"The team have worked so hard to make this a success and our village shop has been incredible throughout, not only selling maps but donating eggs and handing out prizes."

Proceeds are still being counted.

Oakham Town Council also hosted a challenge for families to enjoy.

A series of scarecrows were hidden in shop windows, each holding an item of treasure that wouldn't normally be found in that shop.

Treasure hunters were tasked with finding the unusual items. Entries will go into a prize draw later this week.

The Deepings Library was also a hive of activity over the bank holiday weekend.

Library coordinator Louisa Crowson staged an Easter trail with chocolatey treats on offer from the Easter Bunny.
