A conservation charity will help restore the habitat and encourage more wildlife at a north Norfolk wood.
The Felbeck Trust, along with North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), has successfully bid for a Pocket Park Plus Award to manage Sadler's Wood in North Walsham.
The 20-acre site is a mixture of grassland and mixed woodland and is currently managed by the council, but has recently lost its Green Flag status.
The trust and its group of volunteers will take over managing the site and, with the help of NNDC, restore it and improve play areas and walking paths through the woods.
Through the government's £3.75 Pocket Parks Plus programme more than 150 community-led groups will receive funding to help bring parks that have fallen into disrepair back into use. The trust already manages a number of sites in north Norfolk including Sustead Common and it owns Spurrell's Wood, near Aylmerton.
