OOMPA Loompas and Willy Wonka made a special appearance on a Weston estate to celebrate the opening of a community space.
A party was held last Thursday to mark the official launch of the Chocolate Garden on the Bournville.
The Lonsdale Avenue garden was transformed from a derelict piece of land by Bournville Area Residents’ Association after four years in the pipeline.
The group fund-raised tirelessly to raise £108,000 and was given help from NSHousing, Neighbourhood Management Partnership and the Big Lottery Community Spaces Fund.
