Youngsters in Uppingham have brought festive sparkle to an old garden wall.

Ella Cowling, Madeleine Longden and Emily Longden decided to decorate the mural in Pickles End, Uppingham. An initial idea for a permanent design would have required planning permission, so the girls instead came up with a plan to bring some Christmas cheer to the street with a light display.

After consulting residents they installed the display earlier this month.
