Buchan residents turned out in droves for the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Strichen Lake which took place on Easter Sunday.

The event, which is now firmly part of the village’s social calendar, was organised by Stichen Playgroup and included a host of fun activities for children and families.

Among the highlights were an Easter egg scavenger hunt, an Easter bonnet competition, an Easter egg decorating competition and a pet show, which was judged by a local vet.

Refreshments were available throughout the afternoon, including a hot dog stand, as well as Buchan’s Ices ice cream van - who also made a donation to the fund-raising effort.

There was further fun with raffles, a bottle stall, face painting and homebakes on offer.

In total, the fantastic sum of £913.50 was raised for playgroup funds.
