The Crafty Foxes are working with Bury in Bloom to run the Crafty Creature Competition.

This week they held a crafting session at Sybil Andrews Academy, on Moreton Hall.

Participants are being invited to recycle plastic bottles, tubs and cartons to create a planter which, in the process, is transformed into a ‘creature’.

Entrants can then go along to Woolpit Nursery and pick up some free plants to go in their planter. The idea is to be creative with the choice of plants – thinking about the textures, colours and shapes which work best with their creature.

The aim of the competition is to encourage recycling and upcycling of everyday waste by reusing items in an imaginative way.

• To enter the competition you need to post a photo of your final planted product at www.facebook.com/thecraftyfoxes.buryinbloom
