26th (Wednesday) Ordered, collected and delivered sand & cement to the community garden to assist in the creation of a memorial area of the garden.

Whilst I was there we had another delivery of wood chippings.
27th (Thursday) Spent 12 hours doing work at the community garden. Restoring & painting the main gate, helping to repair the roller shutter on our hub building, emptied the first of 4 large plastic planters that we want to relocate, clearing more of the car park, taking some of the rubbish to the recycling centre, planting Heuchera, Welsh poppies and some Sambucus nigra.
28th (Friday) Painted a bit more of the community garden gates and arranged the collection of a shed for next weekend.
29th (Saturday) Spent several hours on the allotment, weeding, putting the bean & pea plants in along with sweetcorn.
