Volunteers from Mars Food UK's site in King's Lynn helped youngsters transform their open space into a haven for nature and outdoor activities. They have also helped with similar projects at three other west Norfolk schools.

Artist Nicola Marray-Woods, who facilitated the activity, said: 'They [the volunteers] get a real buzz from making a positive contribution to the community and it is much appreciated by the pupils, staff and parents at the schools.'
