After our refreshments at Emmanuel Church we headed to Abbey Gardens.

Today was their community gardening event,which was in full swing when we arrived.

Xuân asked if we could clear the L-Shaped bed ready for planting in the future.

We set to work thinking the bed would not take long....but the stinging nettles had other ideas with interwoven roots to tackle,thankfully some of the community volunteers came to give us hand.

All really pleased with how much we managed to remove.
