A TEAM of eco-friendly cyclists descended on Saffron Walden on Monday.

The 15-strong team are on a 600-mile through East Anglia as part of the Otesha Project, a youth-run charity that encourages young people to create social and environmental change through their everyday actions.

They combine sport and the arts to mobilise young people to address the impacts of lifestyles on communities and the world. They provide simple and creative ways to create a cleaner, greener, fairer world.

As part of the tour, the group visited Bridge End Garden for a 'learning' day - they took a tour of the garden, volunteered their services and picked up tips on growing their own produce and organic gardening.
