As well as stalls selling cakes, jams and preserves, handbags and accessories, there was a chocolate tombola and a raffle with prizes including an enormous box of Marks and Spencer chocolates, a Peter Rabbit made out of straw with a basket, spring bulbs, biscuits, easter eggs and more chocolate.

Beryl Moran, who started Poulton Friends of Trinity Hospice 39 years ago, and has been an officer and a secretary for many years, said: “It went off very well. The Easter-themed stalls and activities were very popular.

“We have a good team of volunteers of between 15 to 20 people and we have a meeting once a month to organise things. We also have 50 members, our youngest member is 14 and our oldest member is 98! “
