A project to enhance a picturesque nature spot has been launched in a south Norfolk village.
Wacton Parish Council has set up the Community Woodland Project with the help of a 'member ward' grant from district councillor Des Fulcher.
The project will involve putting in carefully designed pathways, a footbridge, glades to support native wildlife and small piles of logs from fallen trees for insects to flourish.
Mr Fulcher the project would involve two areas - a woodland space and a pond area near the village green.
He said one of the aims was to create an space where children could learn about the environment.

Mr Fulcher said: 'The pond area will have a certain amount of the overgrown trees and shrubs cut back to create a better environment for wildfowl, although some birds occasionally visit this area the plan is to encourage more so a balanced environment can be maintained.'
