A plan to decorate a town centre store with Easter bunting has resulted in a collaboration between opposite ends of the age spectrum.

The Co-op Food store in Wymondham invited Browick Road Primary and Nursery School to provide some original artwork for a window display over the Easter period.

It then recruited adult colourers from senior members of The Open Door group at Wymondham Methodist Church and from Wymondham library.

The children’s visit to the store coincided with a street collection by Marie Curie.

Store Manager Alan Tilley said: “Our Easter art project has had exactly the result we had hoped for, namely to create an opportunity for the community to come together for a joint activity”.

A spokesperson for Browick Road Primary and Nursery School said: “We particularly liked the inter-generational nature of the project.”
