Staff from Flagship Group will be donning their high vis jackets for seven weeks in a Great Yarmouth cemetery for their first ever community campaign.

From Tuesday the project will see Flagship employees, Flagship customers, and members of the public come together to work on the Kitchener Road cemetery site.

Working in partnership with The Conservation Volunteers, as well as the Norfolk Community Foundation and The Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust, volunteers will take part in activities every Tuesday afternoon from 1pm-4pm to boost the biodiversity of the green space and improve their own wellbeing.

The activities volunteers will be involved in include the removal of ivy and bracken, restoring graves and conservation work such as identifying wildflower species.

The project is open to anyone aged 18 years and over. Sturdy shoes will need to be worn. Anyone interested in taking part contact Callum James on 0845 258 6210 or
