BEAUTIFUL bluebells were being planted yesterday morning to help build a eight mile walkway between Hoveton and Potter Heigham.

About 1,000 bluebell bulbs are being planted by school children from Horning and Ludham Primary Schools at the BeWILDerwood adventure park, near Wroxham, to raise funds for the Three Rivers Way Association.

The association was set up to two years ago to create a pedestrian and cycle path across the Broads to encourage healthy life styles and boost tourism.

To help fund the Three Rivers Way campaign people will be asked to adopt clusters of the bluebells through a “Boots, Bikes, Buggies and Bluebells along the Three Rivers” fund-raising drive.

Anyone who sponsors some flowers can make a dedication which will appear on the Three Rivers Way Association website.

It is also hoped the bluebell wood will attract more nature lovers to BeWILDerwood.

Jo Artherton, BeWILDerwood marketing manager, said: “Creating a bluebell wood here is great way for us and the community to really get involved in and support the Three Rivers Way.

“We really hope as many people as possible will get involved to make this a success.”

The chairman of the Three Rivers Way Association Peter Howe said the bluebell wood was an exciting project which would unite local communities and promote the pathway and stewardship of the environment.
