A pair of arty sisters from Norwich have transformed their garden wall into a colourful display to help brighten up people’s walks along their road.
Emily and Sophie Watts, who live in Thorpe Marriott, have spent hours colouring in the bricks outside their home.
The colourful display has taken nine hours, around 60 big chalks and a few cuts to complete.

“My girls are very arty and I’d brought some chalks to do the path and they decided if they did the wall it would hopefully brighten up the street and make people smile.”
Sophie, eight, said she was very proud of the reaction from passersby, while 11-year-old Emily is hoping to colour in more walls.
