Passers-by have already commented on how wonderful a new border is looking at a formerly grey car park in Aylsham.
The community garden project at the Drill Hall car park and entrance is being carried out this summer by the 1st Aylsham Cubs.
They are working with Aylsham in Bloom and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to build borders and planters outside the hall in Cawston Road.
Tony Peterkin, project manager for Aylsham In Bloom, said: 'It is wonderful the support that RHS is giving to Aylsham in Bloom and Aylsham cub scouts to transform what was once a grey car park into a vibrant, colourful and good for wildlife garden.'
It's part of the RHS's national project Greening Grey Britain, which encourages groups to work with young people to green up a grey space. The aim is to highlight the vital role gardens play in providing habitat for wildlife.
