A Norwich garden centre has been spreading festive cheer among the city's green-fingered residents.

Notcutts welcomed more than 200 people to its two special charity flower arranging events in November.

The events at the centre in Daniels Road featured demonstrations from Andrew Grisewood and Jonathan Moseley and have so far raised more than £3,000 for its charity of the year, Age UK Norfolk.

Representatives from the charity spoke at one of the events about its work with older people in Norfolk.

Richard Greenacre, general manager at Notcutts in Norwich, said the centre is aiming to raise £10,000 for the charity. 'It's been a real pleasure to work with Age UK Norfolk and host our flower arranging events – which are always incredibly popular – in aid of the charity,' he said.
