A town is highlighting how it could become plastic free at a special event.
On Friday, August 16, Thetford Town Council is hosting Thetford Goes Wild at King's House Garden.
The Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Friends of Thetford Forest and Natural England will be hoping to inspire families to become plastic-free while also offering bird box making, minibeast hunts and nature crafts.
Mayor Brenda Canham said: "I think people will be really surprised how much is going on in and around Thetford when it comes to conserving our fantastic wildlife.
"We will be using this event to showcase the variety of new projects we have planned for our own land, such as cemetery's new wildflower meadows, to create and enhance the sites for our threatened wild species."
