School children help plant bulbs for Downham Market care home residents to enjoy
These youngsters in Downham Market have found out that it's hard work planting bulbs, ready for spring.
But that didn't stop them all having fun as they spent a morning working outside The Grange care home in Downham Market.
Around 40 pupils from the reception class at Nelson Academy joined members of the Downham in Bloom team to plant the bulbs along Clackclose Road.
And when the daffodils and crocuses flower, residents at the care will be able to enjoy the colourful display in all its splendour.
Town councillor Marion Ross, chairman of Downham in Bloom, co-ordinated the event and the final display will go towards the town's entry in the Anglia in Bloom competition.

She said: 'This is the second year that Nelson Academy has joined us to plant bulbs outside The Grange.
'It's great to see the children so happy planting the bulbs and it's lovely to think that when the flowers finally come up, the children will be able to say they made the area look like that.'
