Lilly and Lila, a pair of gorgeous stiltwalking white bunnies, hopped around the Centre handing out chocolate treats to youngsters.

There were comedy walkabouts from gardeners Pete and Ged Moss. The two silly gardeners, along with their musical wheelbarrow, entertained shoppers with songs, a few jokes and some tricks too.

Children enjoyed making chicks on sticks and Easter bunnies at the free Easter craft workshop on the ground floor mall. There will be lots of Easter cutout shapes to decorate.

St Johns centre manager, Susan Mendoza, said: “Children have enjoyed all the Easter activities today. The lovely stilt bunnies were particularly popular handing out Easter treats”
