The Thetford Princes Trust scheme fundraised to create a trail through the trees, a bug hotel, hedgehog house and bird boxes.

Terry Jermy, chief executive of Charles Burrell Centre, said; "We're so grateful to the young people from the Princes Trust for turning an unused part of our site into something that both benefits wildlife and creates a fun and informative activity for children using the centre."

The site will also be used as Jelly Tots Nursery and Thetford Toy Library to complete the trail and see animals and birds.

Jacob Charles, team leader for Inspire Suffolk, who deliver the Princes Trust in Thetford, said: "Before the team started, the area at the bottom of the field was known as a bit of a waste land. It was fantastic to see the enthusiasm and energy of the team to use the area as a blank canvas."
