Residents are being encouraged to lend a hand with a new project to transform Kettlewell Lane Park in King’s Lynn.

West Norfolk Council and Norfolk Wildlife Trust have joined forces to improve the area and work gets under way on Monday.

The park, near the Hob in the Well pub, has become overgrown in recent years and has started to attract anti-social behaviour.

It has been bought by the borough council who, working with Norfolk Wildlife Trust and residents, has drawn up a conservation plan for the area.

The first stage of the work, beginning on Monday, will involve clearing brambles and picking up rubbish.

Later, wildflowers, nut and fruit trees will be planted. Hedges will be managed and bird and bat boxes installed.

Paths will also be cut, improving pedestrian access to the area.

Volunteers are asked to meet on the bridge opposite the Hob in the Well pub at 10.30am. There is no need to book and equipment will be provided.
