Our group task this week was to help our friends from Bexley Mencap at their allotment.

Working alongside Matt, Liam and Duncan we weeded, cut back thistles and watered. There was time to admire the veg and fruit growing in the plot πŸ…πŸ₯’πŸ§…πŸŒΆπŸŽπŸ₯” and we even met the resident frog 🐸.

Bexley Mencap's allotment belongs to Bexley Learning Enterprise Council and we also helped with communal tasks - clearing pathways, shared areas, borders and verges - for the benefit of all the supported learning plot-holders.

As the sun set the mosquitoes came out so we speedily packed away the tools and posed for a quick team photo.

Just before we headed home Liam thanked us with some Lindor chocolate treats 🍬.

It was fun evening and a big thank you to Bexley Mencap for having us.
