Great Yarmouth residents have enjoyed a little Christmas cheer by making eco-friendly willow wreaths at Norfolk and Waveney Mind's community garden.
Norfolk and Waveney Mind ran free wreath-making workshops at its Community Roots gardening project in Southtown on Wednesday 9th December.
Participants used willow and greenery grown at the garden to weave the home-brightening decorations, along with traditional materials like holly and pine cones.
Hot drinks and friendly chat added to the Christmas spirit, with participants praising the “lovely friendly environment to be involved in making natural things – good for the soul” and “a very enjoyable, safe session”.
Caroline Fernandez, Horticultural Projects Manager at Norfolk and Waveney Mind, said: “We were delighted to offer a safe way for people to come together and enjoy a festive activity in a safe and welcoming way.
“Spending time with others, being in nature, and doing something creative are all brilliant ways that we can look after our wellbeing through the winter.”
There is one more workshop on Wednesday 16th December from 10am to 12pm, free with a suggested donation of £5. Booking is essential – please email firstname.lastname@example.org
