Children at Tysoe C of E Primary School celebrated Easter by decorating eggs and putting them on display at their village church.

The school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) invited pupils and their friends and families to decorate a plain white plastic egg. Youngsters from Horley playgroup and Tysoe Children’s Group also took part in the fundraising event.

The creators of the best eggs, as judged by a local artist, were given chocolate Easter eggs as prizes.

“The intention was to hang the decorated eggs on a tree outside the school to coincide with our Easter church service,” said Emma Philcox, PTA treasurer.

“However, the great British weather put a stop to that. So we came up with the idea of buying two artificial trees and adorning them with the eggs.

“These then went on display in St Mary’s Church, which meant everybody in the village could go to see them.

“All the teachers agree that the event has been a huge success because of the community focus and the creativity of all involved.

“We want to do something similar at Christmas with plain baubles now.”
