THOUSANDS of Japanese cherry blossoms filled Backwell School as youngsters took part in some cultural workshops.

Primary school children due to start Backwell School in September were invited into lessons to learn the art of washi - paper making - from the village's Japanese expert, Elaine Cooper.

The children made 2,800 flowers which now adorn the school's tree, which has been made from bamboo.

The impressive creation will be displayed in the school in Station Road before being put up in each of the nearby primary schools.
