Whole village enjoys Easter traditions in Witchampton


Children from Witchampton C of E First School, one of Dorset’s smallest schools, welcomed in Easter by parading through the village wearing their wonderful Easter bonnets which came in all shapes, sizes and colours. They were cheered on by members of the community and accompanied by their families.

The pupils and their families gathered in the churchyard for their annual Easter Service led by Reverend Suzie Allen. They then paraded through the village, stopping along the way to sing a selection of Easter songs.
Back at school the children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt organised by the ‘Friends of Witchampton’; a wonderful community tradition enjoyed by the whole village and always a very special way to mark
the start of the school Easter holidays.
