Recently we had a fantastic afternoon with an Easter Bonnet parade, which residents enjoyed taking part in.
Apparently, Easter Bonnets are meant to represent the wearing of new clothes to celebrate the new year and growth at Easter time, and according to an 18th-century writer:
"At Easter let your clothes be new
Or else be sure you will it rue."
So thank goodness we had our new hats on! Chocolate Easter bunnies were enjoyed by all too!
