A community art initiative launched during the first lockdown is still going strong, with 2,500 members now supporting its work.
A year after its launch on March 20 2020, St Albans Rainbow Trail shows no signs of losing momentum despite government restrictions starting to ease.
Over Easter, the group aimed to encourage safe school holiday fun for the district's residents while fundraising for Home Start Herts.
Participants in the golden Easter egg hunt had to spot rainbow-clad eggs and displays labelled #StART in the windows of homes, businesses, churches, trees and driveways.
There were prizes donated by local businesses for a lucky winners of the hunt.
Organiser Preet Cox told the Herts Ad: "The charity golden Easter egg hunt allowed residents to get creative and active during the half-term break in celebration of Easter.
