The work was carried out as part of the community big church clean-up and also as part of the students devised social action plan - giving back to the community.

The students were all part of the College of West Anglia’s National Citizen Service group.

Bob Bagshaw from St John’s Church said: “I am amazed at the turn out and all the hard work that they have done in a short amount of time and in weather conditions like this.”
