A community garden in Littleport has been treated to a make over thanks to volunteers.
Local residents came to help out at Peacocks Meadow and while the sun shone an army of helpers turned out to lay a path and trim and tidy a huge amount of ground, in preparation for the siting of planters and benches.
Deb Curtis, Chair, the Friends of the Woodland Garden committee, said: “An energetic group of Main St Co-op staff gave up their day to help, as did members of the Littleport Lions, as well as a host of generous individuals who helped to lay the path.
“Not forgetting the ladies who provided lunch and refreshments for all.
“This path, which will be completed by the end of the month, will provide enhanced access for wheelchair and buggy users.”

The improvements have been funded by East Cambs District Council and Sanctuary Housing.
The path is just the first of the major planned enhancements to the woodland space.
