A LIVING willow has been planted in the grounds of a school.

The structure is a permanent growing and developing feature which will be used as an outdoor classroom and play area for pupils at Wymondley JMI school in Little Wymondley.

The structure was put in the grounds by Living Willow, which plants structures in schools, parks and gardens in East Anglia and the West Midlands, and who also gave a short talk to the children in assembly about the willow.

Thanks to the efforts of the PTA and the willow group, every child was able to take part in the planting and weaving of the willow into two bowers, made from coppiced willow from the Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
