Hundreds of woollen flowers are brightening up Stanwick Lakes today (Friday).

Knitters and crocheters have enjoyed making the flowers as part of a Northamptonshire Community Foundation funded project which promotes well-being through taking part in craft, nature and physical activities such as health walks.

The flowers will be on display for the next few weeks and have already attracted lots of positive attention from dog walkers, cyclists, joggers and schoolchildren who visit the site regularly.
