Youngsters have been helping to tidy up their village as part of a school project.
Year eight pupils from Tendring Technology College swapped their school books for spades as they pitched in to clear a path between Thorpe-le-Soken where their campus is and the village railway station on Tuesday.
The project was suggested by the parish council after it was contacted by the school.
Linda Drury, student support manager for the year group, said: “Each year group was asked to come up with a community project, and when I contacted the parish council chairman Daniel Land he suggested we could clear the path which has become encroached with weeds and mud.
“I found a party of willing volunteers and with the help of staff and a member of staff’s husband we set to work on the challenge.

“Although we were not able to completely clear the path we are looking forward to going back and continuing later in the week,
“It was hard work but we were pleased with what we have done and we’ve already been done the parish council is happy with the work.”
