The youngsters helped make the soft furnishing, which was inspired by their regular ‘Welly Walks’ down to Offwell Woods.

Pupils at Offwell Primary School have made a colourful quilt to reflect their views on the village woods.

The youngsters go on regular ‘Welly Walks’ down to the woods, and occasionally work with one of the rangers.

They came up with an idea to record these walks in a creative way to mirror the inspiration they get from the woods.

With the help of one of the parents, Vikki Sparks (who is a skilled seamstress), each child, from four years old to 11 and staff made a patchwork square reflecting their individual view of the woods.

Mrs Sparks put all the pieces together to create a beautiful quilt and the school is now the proud custodian of a unique piece of art.
