For the last 18 months volunteers from the Friends of North Lodge Park have been restoring the rose garden, but had been missing a centrepiece.

North Walsham sculptor Bob Catchpole heard of the work being done in the park and decided to make a contribution.

Mr Catchpole said: 'They have done so much great work, clearing the roses and making the garden so beautiful but it needed a centrepiece.

'The piece resembles a bird but it's about how traditional tools can have a second use.'
