Dive into Christmas this festive season at a garden centre near Norwich that is inviting customers to go through its tree netting machine.

Thorpe Plant Centre, in Thorpe St Andrew, is bringing back the bizarre - yet popular - experience for 2021 throughout December.

It was first launched in 2018 as something fun to do for staff and customers and after owner Paul Oxborrow posted a video on Facebook it was shared across the UK and beyond.

People can dive through the machine into a paddling pool with a mattress and polystyrene chips inside.

Mr Oxborrow said: "This year we have tried to make it a little more fun and interesting and it is under a gazebo with Christmas lights and we have also invested in a snow machine."

New for 2021, it is in a gazebo with Christmas lights.

Donations are welcome and will raise money to create food parcels which will be distributed by Thorpe Helping Hands.

The netting and chips are environmentally-friendly and there will be hand sanitiser and the machine will be cleaned between customers.
