Dunmow Mayor Councillor Emma Marcus joined in the fun as children thought about how they could support wildlife in the town. These drawings and ideas were then placed on a cardboard tree created by sculptor Nicola Burrell.

Families also drew objects that would bring them join the town square, with ideas inclding an 8ft pink unicorn.

Catherine Mummery, director High Stile Pojects, which organised the day, said: "it was wonderful to see so many families coming along to the library and wanting to take part in all the activities inspite of the rain. There was such a great creative buzz in the library and the day really showed how valued it is a community hub. The library footfall was 312, it is normally 150 on a Saturday."
