Oakley Jennings, a Homefield Primary pupil from Bradwell, has been filling time while on lockdown by building a fairy den in Bluebell Woods - and now wants other children in the community to get creative and join in.

His mum, Jodie Jennings, said: “We didn’t go out of our way to use any special materials. We just got crafty with what we had - an old palette, some stuff out of the recycling bin.

“If you turn left at the back of the ambulance depot and follow the path along you should come to the hideaway.

“Oakley would be thrilled if other children could add their own creations.”
