Chocolate faces, paper windmills, and sneaky clues made the perfect afternoon for tenants, residents and their families in the Fylde area.

We hosted Easter egg hunts at Stanner Lodge in St Annes and Lower Lane Community Centre in Freckleton, where children followed a trail to win a chocolate egg.

After their well-earned treat, they painted small plant pots, made paper windmills and played games.

Annette and Brenda enjoyed seeing their grandchildren having fun at Stanner Lodge.

Annette said: “It was a fun thing to fill a rainy day. The children had fun.”

Brenda said: “I live here and wanted to invite my family as it looked a good activity to do. It is an easy thing for us to come to.”

Sue, another a tenant on the Kilnhouse estate, said she had fun painting pots and playing games with fellow tenants and Progress Housing Group colleagues.

She said: “I was very nervous coming here as I was not too sure what would be happening, but I am glad I came. There has been a lovely atmosphere and I have enjoyed talking to people.”

Sam Beattie, Progress Involvement Officer, said: “It has been great to see the communities of Kilnhouse and Lower Lane get together in their own neighbourhoods and enjoy some Easter fun.

“We had activities for people of all ages, with adults also having fun painting small pots and planting sunflower seeds. There was even an extra special treat at Lower Lane as two Easter bunnies joined us.

“We hope to encourage more people to attend future events like these as a way of building more community spirit and reducing social isolation.”
