A new exhibition, education area, and trail which celebrates the diversity and wonder of Norfolk's countryside has opened in the city centre.

As part of its 90th anniversary year, Norfolk Wildlife Trust has organised an art and sculpture exhibition at The Forum, from which it hopes to raise funds.

30 people, most of them local members of the organisation, have painted or sculpted pieces of work which are on display for two weeks.

The exhibition has been curated by the trust's vice-president Angela Turner.

As part of the event ten city centre businesses, including Jarrolds, HSBC, and The White Company, have included a large picture showcasing Norfolk's countryside taken by renowned photographer Richard Osborne.

An area close to the exhibition has also been set up where children and school groups can take part in interactive information activities to learn about nature.

Brendan Joyce, chief executive of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, said: 'We're the first wildlife trust in the country to reach the 90th anniversary.
