The cracking competition attracted more than 300 colourful decorated eggs

School children from Bromley and Beckenham hatched a plan to show off their creative skills in the run-up to Easter in the inaugural Eggs Factor competition.

The cracking competition attracted more than 300 colourful decorated eggs from pupils attending Valley Primary School, Clare House, Highfield Infants and Junior School, Alexandra Junior and Infant Schools and St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.

The judges were overwhelmed by the egg-cellent standard of entries, but after much deliberation decided to make Jack Ryan from St Mary’s the overall KS1 winner, and Lily Lynch from Valley Primary School the overall KS2 winner.

Both Jack and Lily will receive a giant chocolate Easter egg to enjoy over the weekend, plus £200 for their school and £50 for themselves.

Sam Samuel, managing director at Edward Ashdale saidL “The standard of entries has made this a really tricky competition to judge.

“All were fabulous we’ve been so impressed with the creativity - Bromley clearly has the Eggs Factor.

“However, we decided on Jack’s ‘family at home’ and Lily’s ‘classroom’, as they displayed maximum effort and we loved the ideas.

“Jack’s creation is a great representation of the average family in Bromley, complete with pet, and Lily’s design involved over 30 eggs with individual caricatures of each of the pupils and teacher; all named.”

The winning designs, and entries from all schools taking part, will be on display in the window of Edward Ashdale on Beckenham Lane, until Easter Monday.
