On a cold December's afternoon, about 30 people came together under a lantern-lit awning close to the new Parkwood Springs sculpture to make themselves Christmas wreaths using withies, holly and greenery cut from local woodland.

Rangers from the Council's Parks and Countryside Department provided the materials and expertise - and it was all free of charge.

Neill Schofield, Chair of the Friends of Parkwood Springs, said, 'We all had a really nice evening, and there were some really beautiful wreaths. I was amazed how quickly people picked up the idea.'

Afterwards people had mince pies and mulled wine, and sang carols to celebrate the installation of the sculpture.
