Children from a village primary school created a 8ft 3D golden goose with the help of a renowned artist.

Gosfield Community Primary School pupils have worked on the project with Goosefield Gallery’s Georgie Roy.

Youngsters finished off the construction of the massive 3D structure, which is made of chicken wire and wood, by weaving recycled and donated plastic bags into the frame to create the feathers.

The goose, which was originally bought for 2009’s Gosfield Goose Trail, will now go on display near the playing fields as part of village’s Anglia in Bloom entry - with judging set to take place next Friday.

Ms Roy said: “In days gone by geese were transported from Norwich to London and they would stay in a field in Gosfield on the way - which is called Goose Field.

“It made it fun for the children using recycled materials to produce art and of course all the plastic bags will be disposed of responsibly.

“The kids did not want to go back to their next lesson.

“They were very productive and all together weaved between 1,500 and 1,600 feathers.

“I like getting involved in things around the village and I thought this would make a nice feature for Gosfield in Bloom.”
