An archaeological excavation at Banjo Paterson Park had a few extra sets of helping hands this week with the Work For The Dole crew heading along to join the dig.
David Howarth was among those taking part in the project, which aims to uncover parts of the old Templers Mill.
While puling old bricks from the earth on Wednesday, Mr Howarth said he had no problem getting his hands dirty.
"I don't mind this sort of work, it's not bad at all," he said.
"I'm sure we'll learn something along the way too."

The group was one of several who spent a few hours at the Ophir Road park this week, as part of a project to recover parts of the three-story brick flower mill built in 1848 by John Arthur Templer.
Since work began on Saturday, a lot of Bluestone footings have been uncovered, brick walls have been exposed and hopes were high on Wednesday that the chimney had been uncovered.
Orange High School and James Sheahan Catholic High School history classes also made the trip.
