CHILDREN had an "eggstra" incentive to go on the bus to school, after First Huddersfield launched an Easter egg competition.

Bradley and Rawthorpe pupils who travel on the yellow American-style school buses were invited to submit designs on paper for a decorated egg competition.

And the two winners were presented with chocolate eggs as prizes.

All entries have been displayed inside the buses.

All contestants received a small chocolate creme egg.

Graham Riley, managing director of First Huddersfield said: "We are keen to provide a high quality service for the young riders on the Yellow Buses. If we make this school bus journey attractive, hopefully these children will consider using the bus as an alternative to the car when they are older."

Easter-themed competitions have been taking place across Huddersfield.

Among the youngest winners were three-year-olds at the First Class Nursery, Portland Street, Huddersfield, with their decorated eggs.

Year three pupils at Shelley First Year School were pitted against each other in a fancy egg competition.

Tots at Shepley pre-school playgroup were resplendent in their Easter bonnets.
