This evening we were back helping St Paul's church on Stoke Rd with a gardening task. With a mixed bag of arrival routes to the task location we waited for Neline to arrive and lettuce know what area she wanted us to focus on.

We were really pleased to get a call from Mehdi to say he was coming but knew that Eshan may not arrive today...little did we know!

Neline showed us to the side of the church and asked for the line of beds along the wall to be tidied up and weeds removed. With tools in hand we got to work. It was great to have Joseph back and Helen on an evening task.

The recent rain had been a blessing as the soil was nice and soft and easy to remove the weeds. The whole task didn't take too long at all tonight. We even had extra help from a church goer and a lovely surprise visit at the end from Eshan and Mohammad. They actually stayed on with Mehdi to help with the nettled areas - the untouchables!

Thank you everyone for all your efforts this evening.

Next week it's our 5th birthday! So please do come along to our celebratory task
