PUPILS at Comberbach Primary School have been creating flowers from recycled materials as part of Cheshire’s Year of Gardens ’08.
Artist Julian Longcake worked with the youngsters to make a mass of exotic blooms which were displayed at the recent canal and river boat festival at Anderton.
The children took their inspiration for the recycled floral display from the real flowers in Anderton Nature Park.
Visitors to the festival also had the opportunity to create their own flowers with Julian and try their hand at other skills.
County Council ranger David James led wildflower plantings and walks and ecologist Chantelle Edwards helped visitors get a closer look at plants under the microscope.
