An Easter Story trail has been set up to lift people's spirits in Oldbury-on-Severn.

Residents, local businesses, schools and community groups have created different parts of the Easter story along a route in and around the village.

The trail, which includes a loaf of bread, two big roosters and a cross, ends at St Arilda’s Church at an Easter Garden that has been adorned with pebbles decorated by local families.

It has been masterminded by Amelia Pearce, who is the chair of the Olbury Busy Bees Pre-school committee.

Children from the pre-school and play group have created a butterfly as part of the trail currently running in Oldbury-on-Severn.

Amelia said: “After the success of the Nativity trail in December, we wanted to create something to lift people’s spirits for Easter.

"Everyone is loving spotting the amazing creations through the village and we all had such a great time making them.

"Special thanks to St Arilda’s Church members for all of their support.”

Denise Young, manager at Busy Bees, added: “The children absolutely loved building and painting the butterfly for the trail.

"They can’t wait to get out and spot all of the other wonderful creations.”

The trail will run until Easter Sunday.

Oldbury Busy Bees is based at the Pavillion and open five days a week, for children aged 2-4 years old. Visit for more information.
