A community group is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help maintain nearly 7,000 plants on Portland.

Revive Portland want to decorate the local area for the up and coming Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Community Group Revive Portland and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council have been working closely together to design and implement the official dressing on areas of Portland for the London 2012 Games with funding which has been made available by the Government.

Volunteers will carry out jobs such as maintaining, watering and deadheading the plants throughout the summer.
