Knitting an egg

by
17 April 2014

THEY are quite the strangest-looking Easter eggs - but the worshippers at St Cuthbert's, Copnor, in Portsmouth diocese, have knitted 12 of them, and hidden them in shops and the library along the Tangier Road as an Easter-egg trail for families to discover.

Each egg has been marked with a letter from the alphabet which, when put together and unscrambled, spell out the three words that sum up what Christians celebrate at Easter. There is a leaflet that lists the names of the places where the eggs can be found (is that making it too easy?), and the hunt goes on until Tuesday. All the completed entries are being entered into a prize draw
