Children get creative for Easter competitions in Lees, Springhead and Grotton

FROM bright Easter bonnets to mouth-watering cakes, there was an array of eye-catching creations as children got crafty for a host of competitions.

LSG Business Hub ran the online event for children aged 11 and under who live or go to nursery or school in Lees, Springhead or Grotton.

The four fun categories were Easter bonnets, Easter cakes, egg decorating and other Easter crafts, with each judged by the Mayor of Oldham Cllr Ginny Alexander.

There were more than 40 entries overall and goodie bags were awarded to the winner and runner-up in each category, as well as an Easter egg to every child who entered.

Cllr Alexander said: “I was very honoured to be the judge of the LSG Business Hub Easter Competitions – but it was a very difficult job!

“I wish I could have given everyone who entered a prize as all the entries were lovely and you were all winners in my eyes. Well done to everyone and congratulations to the winners.”
