A convoy of 130 bikers delivered hundreds of Easter eggs and toys to a children’s hospice.

As detailed in this week’s Gazette, the fourth annual Chestnut Tree House Easter Egg Run was the biggest to date despite wet and windy conditions last Sunday.

In total, 392 Easter eggs and more than 200 toys and teddies, were dropped at the hospice, in Dover Lane, near Arundel.

In addition, £418.11 was raised for the charity, which included £80 from Vikings MC Sussex and £80 through justgiving, with the remainder coming during the reception at The Farmers Pub in Lancing after the delivery.

Event organiser Andy Parmenter, known as Hobbit, said the event had doubled in size from last year and described it as a brilliant day.

We also take an in-depth look at the increase in the use of food banks across the region on our special investigation pages, and look into the reasons behind the growth in the service.

Our monthly question and answer session from the Sussex Wildlife Trust is also included this week.

This time, answers to questions about the Marine Conservation Zone and honeybees are answered.

These are just some of the stories in this week’s Gazette.

There are dozens more news stories, features, picture stories, columnists, letters, business news, entertainment and sport.

There is a round-up of cases from the local courts, details of the latest roadworks and an important message about spotting the signs of bowel cancer.
