Norwich is blessed with many beautiful parks and green spaces, and as the sun comes out they are the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing afternoon.

In the first of our week-long photo feature, photographer Nick Butcher took a trip to Waterloo Park.

Bursting with colourful flowers, trees and quaint waterways, the park also features a bandstand, water play area and pavilion for families to enjoy.

And for those who don’t fancy preparing a picnic, the park now boasts its own café - Park Britannia - which opened at the end of last year.

It is the third café to be opened by Britannia Enterprises, the social enterprise which helps to rehabilitate serving low-risk prisoners or ex-offenders by giving them the opportunity to undertake valuable work experience.

The café gave a new lease of life to the park’s grade II-listed pavilion which had been shut for more than a decade.
