A mid-Norfolk community braved the elements last weekend, to transform their local primary school with a spring clean.

More than 40 volunteers turned out to help spruce up North Elmham Primary School, working on both the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Friends group members provided bacon rolls, hot drinks and home-made cakes for the volunteers, who ignored blustery conditions to paint and tidy the school's adventure playground, renovate the outdoor sensory areas, improve site security and transform the gardening area.

Indoors, helpers decluttered classrooms, painted the school hall and revamped the library and computer lab.

Headteacher Sue Tobin said pupils were delighted with the revamp.
