Residents on the Revival estate off Tadcaster Road organised a terrific family Easter event on Good Friday. There was a treasure hunt with clues deposited around the estate, and an Easter bonnet competition with lots of fantastic entries.
Staff from Tesco Askham Bar were there to serve free refreshments and run an Easter egg decorating stall.

There was live entertainment and a range of stalls run by local community groups, plus plenty of activities for children.
Stephen and Ann gathered views from young people on what they like best about local play areas, and what improvements they would like to see made. The comments received will support our bid for funds from the council to improve the play areas at Woodthorpe and on Nelsons Lane.
