CHILDREN took to the streets on Saturday in the hope to claim first prize in the Royston town centre annual Easter Chocolate Trail.
Following on from last year's success, 150 youngsters were given two-and-a-half hours to hunt high and low in search for clues that led them to the grand prize, a giant chocolate rabbit.
Each child had to spot 12 small chocolate rabbits hidden in various retail windows in the High Street, John Street, Angel Pavement and Market Hill.
After spotting all the hidden rabbits and recording them on an entry form, all entrants then deposited their forms into the prize draw container at the Corn Exchange. A small chocolate egg awaited every child presenting a completed form.

Organiser and town centre manager Geraint Burnell said: "This is always my favourite event of the year and it's good to see the children and parents enjoying themselves in the town centre.
"In fact, a number of people specifically commented on how pleasant and well-behaved the children had been."
In conjunction with Ladds, Black Pig Design and 12 town centre retailers, the event run by Mr Burnell and his team is now in its third year.
Mr Burnell added: "All-in-all, I think it's fair to say that it was another good day in Royston.
