- Credit: Submitted
A new nature reserve is now open to the public, after two years of hard work.
Cremer's Meadow, in Brundall, received its official opening at the weekend, having been transformed by a committed group of volunteers.
The Friends of Cremer's Meadow was formed in 2014, after Shirley Cremer agreed to sell the four-acre site to Brundall Parish Council, following the death of husband Ivan.
It was agreed that the site, which is partially wetland, would be turned into a nature reserve and opened up for the people of the village to enjoy.
An opening ceremony – complete with cream tea – was held on Saturday, with Mrs Cremer cutting the ribbon.

About 140 people attended the event, including members of the Friends, conservationists and businesses that have helped the project happen. Gill Buckley, Brundall parish councillor and chairman of the Friends, said: 'It was a fabulous occasion and a real turning point for the project. It will give the people of Brundall a peaceful, tranquil place to reflect and enjoy.
'We're also hoping it will be made use of by scout groups and the local school and really add something to the village. There is still a lot of work to do to really get the best out of the site, but we're all delighted it is ready to use – about a year earlier than we planned.'
