1st Eye Scout group worked on the four pieces of artwork for their world challenge award for several months.

Children visited Hartismere Place care home during the project to play games with residents and draw up their ideas for the artwork.

It now has pride of place in the garden at the venue in Eye, near Diss.

Hartismere place customer relations manager, Angela Hodge, said: 'We were delighted when the 1st Eye Scout Group chose us for this exciting project. The residents have loved having the children around and contributing their own ideas to the artwork.
