YOUNGSTERS in Thetford have been getting busy in the garden thanks to a �500 from Breckland Council's pride in Breckland scheme.

The youths are creating their own wildlife garden for the town. The money was given to the Thetford branch of The Prince's Trust XL Club, who have now created the garden behind the fire station and next to Norwich Road Community Primary School.

The club, which is part of the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service Youth Development Team, offers young people support at a critical stage of their lives. Its aim is to help them tackle the problems and challenges they face in their teenage years.

The XL club also educates young people on community values and citizenship
