Alice stages a wonderful Easter tea party.

LIVERPOOL'S Botanic Park became the setting for author Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for the day.

The children's classic tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole into a fantasy realm populated by talking playing cards and anthropomorphic creatures.

And Alice, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts took part in its annual Easter egg-stravaganza and tea party at the Victorian Park, near Edge Lane.

The event was organised by the park with the Friends of Botanic Park Society and local residents, with funding and support from Community Seven.

This year, the Easter activities were even more special, with the appearance of the official Alice from the Lewis Carroll Society, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts.

Alice is Hannah Rowe, 11, who lives near Daresbury, Cheshire - birthplace of Lewis Carroll.

She took on the part for one year and will attend various functions and events in costume.

The Mad Hatter was Constable George Rees from Tuebrook police station on West Derby Road, which is part of the Kensington New Deal Police Squad.

The Queen of Hearts was Kelsie Bristow.
