A church cemetery has been transformed thanks to the work of a group of young volunteers.

Youngsters cleaned up the 800-year-old church’s cemetery after teachers noticed it was overgrown.

College staff Errol Seaman and Steve Burge saw a great volunteering opportunity and vicar Joel Edwards seized on the offer.

Errol said: “It’s uplifting how youngsters can impact a community.”
