We were back at YMCA this evening to tackle the garden with Ellie, Steph and Leszek seeing the wonders of the YMCA garden for the first time.

We arrived slightly early so fit in a little more in the time available. Leszek got to work quickly clearing the litter in the left hand corner whilst I focused on hacking back the big bushes / trees encroaching on the public highway.

Ellie did an excellent job giving the grass a short back and sides and Steph chopped and moved into bin bags all the branches needing taking away.

Sarah found many random items whilst clearing the best one of which was a phone!

The session went quickly with eight bags of rubbish accumulated before heading home. We look forward to returning next month 😊
