RAF Regiment trainees have been helping to keep Thetford tidy as part of their community project.
It was decided giving Castle Mound and the surrounding area a spring clean would be the ideal mission for the 34 trainees from Meiktila Flight, based at RAF Honington.
The men, who were under the direction of instructors and guidance of council staff, put in the equivalent of more than 100 man hours picking litter and edging the paths.
They moved 25 wheel barrows of earth, picked up 20 bags of rubbish, three bags of recycling cans, and even an old bed.

Flight Sergeant Mac MacDonald said: 'Several members of the public thanked them for their efforts which made the day all the more rewarding for the trainees, who are four weeks into their 18 week trade training. They were certainly ready for a cool pint of beer and the hospitality of The Albion at the end of the day before returning to RAF Honington.'
