Children at Nurserytime South Shields have been celebrating the change in season in their own unique way by taking part in the Easter bonnet parade at their community garden in North Marine Park.

The Nurserytime children designed and created their own bonnets and also marked the Hindu festival of Holi, otherwise known as the 'festival of colour' or the 'festival of Spring'.

Helen Coulson, manager of Nurseytime, said: “The children of Nurserytime have been very excited to see signs of spring appearing as they venture into their local environment for their regular outings. Within their Springtime celebrations, the children had designed and created their own Easter bonnets and decided they would like to show them off.
