The first garden task of the year at St. Matthews Church found Ashley, Mandy, Ellen, Jenny and first time Goodgymer Sarah tackle some overgrown trees and the fallout of the recent windy weather. Copious amounts of hand tools were employed to hack, cut, saw, bludgeon our way through the branches cutting them into smaller pieces that we could hide away in any bin we found. One very long branch had almost snapped off but try as they might, Ellen and Sarah were unable to bring it down no matter how many times they twisted or swung on it.
