VILLAGERS in the Teme Valley gave up time for a spot of communal gardening.

People living in Knighton-on-Teme came together for a grass cutting and tidy up session around the Parish Hall.

They used mowers, strimmers and other cutting equipment to tackle overgrown areas and then removed the waste.

With the most vigorous part of the growing season here now it should mean that the communal area looks good for the rest of the summer.
