It's really nice to get out of the classroom and do this. It's very satisfying work

Now, thanks to the trainees' tireless efforts to cut down and clear the shrubbery, the area is flatter so children can view the entrance as they approach and the hope is ultimately to landscape the area and plant low-growing shrubs and bulbs.

Able Seamen (ABs) Sprigg and Skellorn helped to hack the bushes away and said, "It's really nice to get out of the classroom and do this. It's very satisfying work."

Head Teacher Julie Roche accompanied some of the children to inspect the trainees' work and said, "I am extremely grateful to the Navy cadets for all their hard work. The school grounds look so much better now and the front entrance is clearly visible.

"The cadets were amazing working in freezing cold conditions and achieving so much!"
