VIDEO: Easter parades in Southwick

Waiting for Video...

CHILDREN in Southwick proudly paraded their Easter bonnets on Friday.

Southwick Pre-School Playgroup held its parade in the morning, while creations at Glebe Primary School were judged in the afternoon.

Pupils in reception and key stage one at the Church Lane school stepped out on to the catwalk to the sound of Judy Garland’s Easter Parade.

Older children sat either side to see the varied array of hats paraded past while judges decided on the prize winners.

They were able to take part in a decorated egg competition, which saw creations from an EggScape Theme Park to a British Eggways plane.

Head teacher Ann Walton said: “It has been a simply wonderful afternoon – and extremely yellow one, too!

“The effort put into all the hats and eggs each year just continues to amaze me. I must say a huge well done to everyone competing, not just the winners.”

Even the staff were involved in the parade, with the Glebe tradition that all new members of staff have to produce their own Easter bonnet and model it on the catwalk.

At the playgroup, which meets at Southwick Community Centre, hats were adorned with chicks, rabbits, eggs and flowers.

Some children wore straw hats covered in decorations, while others had hats made from card and felt.
