School pupils created a huge 'Easter egg masterpiece' at a retirement home in Chorley.

The bowling green at Buckshaw Retirement Village was transformed after children from Buckshaw Trinity Church of England and Methodist Primary School joined residents for a fun-filled 'intergenerational' event. 

Captured from above, drone images reveal the scale of their creation.

The egg design which was painted on the green symbolises 'the beginning of spring and the shared happiness' of the Easter season.

General manager at The Court, Sian Mann, said: “It was wonderful to witness the different generations come together to create this wonderful Easter project. 

“Activities like these are essential for developing strong, close-knit communities, with research highlighting the mental health benefits such interactions bring to all.”

Ian Sarginson, the priest at Buckshaw Village Church, joined the young artists, helping to guide their hands as they brought the Easter vision to life.

The day also included an Easter egg hunt with the residents hiding treats for the children to find.

Sian added: “We hope the drone photos capture the essence of what was a truly memorable day for everyone involved. 

“The sight of our bowling green transformed into an Easter celebration is one for the history books of our village.”
