How I mended the broken arch at the allotment

Whoop – I have actually managed to save the arch! I cut down all of the plants that were growing over it and was then able to see what had gone wrong with the arch frame. I was able to push some bits back together as they had simply come apart, and also mend other sections that had broken. I need to keep my fingers crossed that it will last!
