As Saturday got slightly less cold Louise, Lynne and Julian made their way to the United Reform Church in Charlton for today's mission. The church has been holding community sessions with doctors and there was a need to improve vehicular access by clearing the lane at the back of the church.

We were met by vicar Andrew and Lucy and soon put to work: Lynne got down to work clearing brambles and weeds and Julian and Louise set to digging a path for cars. Normally when working on missions we'll see cats, dogs, the squirrels and the occasion fox, so it was delightful when a different creature, in this case a small frog, was uncovered.

After an hour and a bit the lane was a lot clearer and the mud and weeds had been tucked away for collection. Extra kudos to Louise though, who stayed even longer to help Andrew lay some sleepers and gravel to finish off the path.
