A group of Lynn schoolchildren have been sowing the seeds of cross-Channel connections as part of a major international culture project.

Youngsters from the Greyfriars Primary School worked with the Le Jardiniers Nomade team of landscape artists to create seed balls of wild flowers during a session on Thursday.

The seed balls, which also contain clay and compost, will be exchanged with a batch made at a school in the French town of Amiens in a bid to create a lasting friendship display.

West Norfolk Council has been working with the Maison de la Culture in Amiens on a two-year project to cement cultural links between the two communities.

Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk Council’s cabinet member for culture, tourism and marketing, said: “This is a great way for children to get involved in the Arts, Cities, Landscape project.

“It’s a fun activity that’s really easy to do, but it helps to encourage children to think about their landscape and to foster links with our French neighbours. As they grow, the seeds will be a beautiful reminder of those links.”

The children worked with the Le Jardiniers Nomade landscape artists to create the floral installations.
