Emily and John arrived bang on time (almost) on Sunday morning to help tidy up Penn Road Garden, a quiet and peaceful green triangular public space that is regularly maintained by the local community. It's late January, but we still had many leaves to clear, which will be composted.

We also picked up numerous large twigs, and branches of all sizes, which had become detached from the park's trees following recent storms. While working hard, we were able to catch up with each others' lives over the two-hour task, while also removing green shoots and holly which were smothering tree trunks.
