A FUN-FILLED day of flower crafts was held in Nuneham Courtenay yesterday.

The Oxford University Harcourt Arboretum event helped to educated children about the different flowers that grow along the flowers trail.

About 60 children attended and craft activities included making flowers out of pipe cleaners, sticks and paper.

Seven-year-old Miles Treavis went along with brother Hugh, five, and mum Hilary.

He said: “I made a lot of friends, I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot about flowers.”

The trail, which runs until Monday, is free for children and costs £4 for the adult accompanying them.
