A Royston family built a fairy garden for their grandchildren to enjoy during lockdown, and are looking forward to inviting other children as restrictions ease.
Lisa Cooke, her mother Eve and her husband Steve set up the fairy garden - complete with gnomes, dog sculptures and little houses - for their three-year-old granddaughter Lula, and their baby grandson who is due to be born this month.
Lisa said: "The idea started last year during the first lockdown. I spent six months thinking about how I wanted it to be.
"Then I thought why not open the garden to other youngsters once people can visit other family and friends. The children had to put up with so much this last year.
"The fairy garden itself took around six weeks to build, and we collected the wood while walking the dogs.
