Meadow of Hope

Meadow of Hope Introduction

The ‘Meadow of Hope’ project will see Blackfield Creatives and the YAB Young Commissioners work with other young people across West Norfolk to create an art installation, using recycled bottles to make hundreds of flowers which will then form a meadow. The purpose of the project is to raise awareness about the importance of protecting the environment, whilst highlighting the damage that single-use plastics and littering can cause.  

Young commissioners from the YAB are clear about why they want to get other young people involved: “The West Norfolk YAB believe strongly about the environment. We want to make a change, so even if one person becomes more aware about recycling, it’s something we’re proud to have achieved” 

Jenny Ward, one of our Directors, explains why we have got involved “As we have developed this project with the West Norfolk YAB we have been so impressed by the determination of the Young Commissioners to get the community thinking about recycling. We were delighted that they wanted to take a creative approach to their campaign too and look forward to seeing how the project evolves”. 


Over the last few months, the team have been busy out in the community delivering creative workshops across the region, so that other young people aged between 11 and 19, who live or study in West Norfolk, can take part and make their own flowers for the Meadow too.  

We have been working with schools and groups across the area, including the Downham Market Rangers, Springwood Academy in King’s Lynn, the 21st Scout Group in King’s Lynn, the 2nd Runcton Holme and Watlington Scout Group and the LGBTQ+ Kings Lynn Group. Over the next few weeks, we will also be delivering workshops with students from the College of West Anglia and the Wereham and Wretton Scout Group.  

We are still keen to engage with as many young people as possible, so if you are interested in supporting a workshop, either in your secondary school, college or youth group, please get in touch with the team at or follow the link  HERE
