NHS workers on a large estate received a free Easter egg as a thank you from a community support group.
The newly-formed Queen’s Hills Coronavirus Community Covid-19 Mutual Aid group donated the sweet treats to 300 people in the Costessey community on the edge of Norwich.
All the eggs were provided to the newly-formed group by Wilko in Norwich and Debenhams in Bury St Edmunds.
Group member Gary Blundell, 44, from Kestrel Avenue, said: “I think this shows that during such a stressful time we can all pull together and bring a glimmer of sunshine to peoples lives.”

The new community group, made up of residents from the estate, will go out and buy items needed by people who are self-isolating and deliver them.
