Dozens of volunteers helped transform the playground at a Norwich school.
A team of 25 from Love Norwich, an initiative of the Proclaimers Church in Norwich, helped shift more than 30 tonnes of soil as part of a project at Mile Cross Primary School.
As part of the scheme, new flower beds have been put in which schoolchildren will soon fill with plants, herbs and vegetables as part of their lessons.
Tom Rawls, senior minster from Proclaimers Church, which is currently based at Ramada hotel in Boundary Road, said: 'As a church, we're thrilled to be making a contribution to our city. We love Norwich and want to be a force for good in our community'.

Stuart Allen, headteacher at the Brasier Road school, said: 'Sterling effort from everyone and a special thank you to Love Norwich and the crew of merry men and women. A great help to the school. On behalf of the school, par-ents and Mile Cross community, a great big thanks. Hopefully this will strengthen the relationship between Love Norwich and the school.'
