Parents in a village near Great Yarmouth are fundraising to build a sensory garden for primary school pupils.

Friends of Rollesby Primary School have started a GoFundMe page to raise £5,000 for a sensory garden to be built there.

Abigail Mickleburgh, mother-of-three and vice-chair of Friends of Rollesby Primary School, said the garden would provide a safe, quiet space for pupils to enjoy for many years to come.

"We just want to bring a bit of joy back to our children's lives," said Mrs Mickleburgh, 36.

"We want to get involved with this as it can lead on to other things to improve the pupils' lives, such as a gardening or wildlife club."

The sensory garden will include a variety of things to inspire and calm pupils, including five things you can see, four things you can touch, three things you can hear, two things you can smell and one thing you can taste.

The group are also looking for volunteers to help them build the garden.
