Families with young children enjoyed the Easter-themed fun in Dorchester as Brewery Square held their annual Easter egg hunt.

Parents brought their young ones down to the concierge office at Brewery Square while the egg hunt took place between Good Friday and Easter Monday to collect their sheet and get started on an egg hunt.

The aim of the game was to find all of the eggs on the sheet that were scattered around the shops and restaurants in the vicinity of Brewery Square.

Participants were rewarded with an Easter egg when they completed the course.

Mark White took his two daughters Annika, 10, and Eve, seven, to Brewery Square for the egg hunt on Easter Monday.

He said: "Yeah it is great, we came last year so we thought we would come back again.

"We have had a nice weekend, the weather is not as hot today but we might be able to get down to the beach if it brightens up a bit later on."

Laura Draper brought her children Max, nine, and Evie, eight, down for the event. She said: "I think it's much better than just handing over an Easter egg on the Sunday or what have you, this is much nicer because you get to go for a bit of a walk in the sun and it's good fun for the kids as well."

Paul Stone, who works as a security supervisor at Brewery Square, was given the very important task of guarding the chocolate eggs.

He said: "We have had quite a few families coming in with young ones and some groups of families doing it together. It's good fun."
