Herd of elephants takes up residence at Hethersett Library

A herd of elephants has taken up residence in Hethersett Library.

Library users have nothing to fear, however, as the animals, which are nestling amongst the books, owe more to Blue Peter than the wilds of Africa and India.

The elephants have been made by the Hethersett Wednesday Arts and Crafts Group from old milk cartons and paper mache. Seventeen animals of various designs will be there throughout the month. Some have even been given names.

For those wanting to try their hand at making their own elephant, there are special instructions put together by Tina Greenhalgh who runs the group, Jane Hobson who came up with the idea and Carol Towells who organised the exhibition.

Local writer Bea Ewart, who is also a member of the group which meets in Hethersett Methodist Church Hall on Wednesdays from 10 am until noon, has produced two original poems to complement the animals.
