A mental health charity helped dig up some family fun during the half-term with an allotment open day.

West Norfolk MIND welcomed more than 30 people to its Discover Allotmenting event, which was held at its Gardening for Health allotment project in Front Way, North Lynn, on Tuesday.

It comes after the charity received funding from Norfolk Healthy Communities Fund and Freebridge Community Housing to buy four more raised beds, which will enable more people with limited mobility to access the project.

During the event, visitors enjoyed a tour, games and quizzes, vegetable planting advice and a free jacket potato.
