A conservation project is bidding for shoppers' votes which could result in a funding windfall.
Broadland District Council's a walk on the wildlife side project aims to enhance the wet woodland area between Marriott's Way and Suter's Drive Pond in Drayton.
It is aiming to get up to £4,000 after being shortlisted for the Tesco Bags of Help initiative, funded by carrier bag sales, which runs into next month.
Tesco customers can vote using tokens from check-outs in the Drayton superstore, Taverham and Hethersett express stores and Norwich Acres Way Express store.
The walk on the wildlife side volunteers want to create an enhanced path between Marriott's Way and Suter's Drive Pond, clear vegetation and replace broken fencing.
