it was another warm night when the group met to run over to the task. The run involved the steps going up to the cathedral followed by a welcome if short lived shaded path. We couldn't resist snapping a photo paparazzi style of some chatting on the street under the area sign which happens to be the name of one of the football teams in the city. the joke of course was that the chatters supported other teams 🤣

We met Ema who had walked two miles to get to the task and John task owner at the top of several steep flights of steps.

The task tonight was to clear back the ever encroaching grass from the path as the path was getting narrower and narrower. We set to with wheelbarrow spades edge cutter and brushes (hold that thought of brushes plural....).

John gave us excellent instruction it always really helps to know exactly what is needed and the best way to do it. We quickly realised how well used this path is and got plenty of welcome feedback and thanks.

How quickly our time went ... we had cleared half the length (we will be back) and created a mound of earth and grass and once more the path was a clear path that was far more accessible.

oh and remember those brushes.... well only one brush made it to the end of the task.... 'someone's ' enthusiastic brushing led to a snap crack and the brush was busted but it couldn't be swept under the carpet.... photos had to be taken ... but John you were supposed to look cross!

And so the end of the evening. what a great task lovely company and great atmosphere.

Congratulations to Lucien for his 10th task.... Great work Lucien.

Welcome to Liam his second deed but first community mission.

Lovely to see Jake and Steph who due to other commitments bank holidays and thunderstorms have not been about for a few weeks... Great to see you both.

See you all next week
