Police cadets have been volunteering at a centre which supports isolated or lonely people.
Teenagers gave their time by picking up spades and forks and donning gardening gloves to help tidy up a community allotment.
The allotment will now be used by The Listening Ear, a local project which also helps those suffering from worry or stress.
The cadets helped out at the Waveney Road site last Saturday, where they were joined by police community support officers and members of the Trench Partnership, which runs The Listening Ear.
PCSO Linda Baker said: "The Listening Ear is an important local resource aimed at helping people with their general wellbeing, and the cadets were determined to do their bit to help this worthy cause.
"They have worked tirelessly to dig over these allotments, which will now be used to help teach users how to grow their own fruit and vegetables."
Anyone is free to attend The Listening Ear, and future sessions will be held between 1pm and 4pm on Friday, June 2 at The Six-in-One Club on Northwood Road, and on Friday, June 16 at Tonbridge Angels Football Club, Darenth Avenue.
