City College Norwich's Ipswich Road campus will be hoping to welcome a wide arrange of wildlife with the construction of a new bug hotel.

Groups of supported Learning Students have made the hotel which should attract a range of insects, bees, birds and hedgehogs.

The hotel is a multi-level wooden structure and is located within the college's pond garden area.

Students took part in a variety of tasks over the course of the project, with some foraging for wood and others drilling holes for bees.

Some of the students had the opportunity to show the completed bug hotel to Sheriff of Norwich Richard Marks, and the Sheriff's Lady, Maeve Marks, during a visit to the college. They were joined by representatives from the Friends of Norwich in Bloom, Norwich Norse Environmental and Norwich City Council.
