Volunteers have helped to clear an overgrown path to make it safer for walkers and cyclists.
A group met up on Saturday, September 4 and spent two hours cutting back overgrown nettles and branches along the path between Thurston and Beyton, near the A14 slip road.
The event was organised by Green Party Mid Suffolk district councillors Wendy Turner, Sarah Mansel, Helen Geake and John Matthissen and Suffolk county councillor Andy Mellen, with supporters.
Also taking part were members of West Suffolk Hive eco-centre, based in Bradfield St George, and Beyton Environment group, as well as members of the public.
The aim was to make the path safer and more pleasant to walk and cycle on.

She added: "I do feel people will have to come together and take care of their local environments in order to create more resilient and cohesive communities, as the future becomes more difficult, due to climate change and other unforeseen events, such as the pandemic".
