Hawk and owl displays will be on show for the early May Bank Holiday weekend from the Grapes Hill Community Garden Group.

On Sunday, April 30, the free to enter nature-themed day will include a host of other activities, including wine tasting, or homemade cakes and tea.

Wines are supplied by the Greenhouse on Bethel Street which stocks Norwich's largest collection of organic, vegan and European wines.

Grapes Hill Community Garden member and tree sponsor Tom Loudon, who hosts frequent wine tastings in the Greenhouse Cafe, will be offering tasters at his stall, with 10pc of the proceeds of any bottle sold going to the Community Garden.

Hodmedods Hedgehog Support will also have a stall for the first time. It is a not for profit organisation aiming to help Norfolk hedgehog rescuers and carers.

Another new stall for the event will be the Nrwich Woodcraft Folk - an educational group for children and young people based on co-operation, peace and democracy.

Organiser Sophie Cabot said: 'Our aim is to have great fun, but also to try and develop children's self confidence and build their awareness of society around them. 'Through our activities, outings and camps we help our members to understand important issues, and by encouraging children to think, we hope they will help build a peaceful, fairer world.'

Other groups attending are the Marlpit Community Garden and Friends of West Earlham Woods. There will be an opportunity to buy a hot lunch from Totem African food stall, have your face painted, enter some fun competitions and take part in various activities. The Grapes Hill Community Garden group will also have a plant sale, seed swap and an information stall for anyone who is interested in finding out more about this Norwich community garden.
