As we approach an Easter bank holiday weekend like no other, join us as we look at pictures from Easter in the 1980s.

Some kids donned elaborate bonnets with head-worn dioramas depicting the resurrection of Jesus, while others were clearly made with little help from an adult.

Daily Echo photographers visited various schools to capture the kids in their seasonal headgear.

Other pictures include an Easter egg handover from Sperrings to Poole Hospital, and world-famous cake artist Mary Ford decorating tasty treats.
