Volunteers have helped to transform a site in Lynn.

Gaywood Valley Conservation Group have been working with West Norfolk Council to improve the site in Kettlewell Lane over the last 12 months.

Over the months, the group cleared the overgrown site, laid out paths and cut back shrubs.

The area has also been enhanced by the spreading of a wildflower seed mix.

During a visit on Monday, volunteers also cleared littler, including bottles, and controlled brambles, along with removing willow and elder.

A representative from the group said: “A supermarket trolley was even removed from the river.

“An assessment of the site showed the presence of 78 separate species of plants. Instead of the area providing a site for drinking and drug taking, it has been opened up and its biodiversity increased.

“This not only makes it more attractive to passers-by and dog walkers, it also provides a better environment for butterflies, moths, birds and other insect wild life.”
