Members of Walford School eco-council helped complete the construction of a willow dragon at Ross Community Garden on Friday, March 6.

The pupils helped weave the panels which gave the huge creation stability at its base.  

Clyde Jefferson of Wild Wicker is over-seeing the project which is being jointly funded by createROSS and Haygrove.

The construction of the willow dragon is the first event in this year’s Ross Reinvented Festival which has a dragon theme.

Future events for youngsters will include a special family film show and craft day at Ross Labels as well as a dragon wing-making workshop at the library.
