A selection of birds including flamingoes, parrots and king fishers were created by Burnham Market Primary School and have been placed around The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House at Hillington.

Pupils, staff and teachers helped create the pieces and went to see the pieces now they have been placed around the grounds for everyone to admire in all their splendour.

It is hoped they will be a long term fixture, and will at least remain there for a number of years.

Sally Collier, is from the North West Norfolk Decorative & Fine Arts Society based in Sedgeford, which provided funding and co-ordinated the project with artist Jessica Perry.
