Tonight was the last Jewellery Quarter Trust task for a while as the night's draw in, but don't worry we'll be back there doing some Missions on a weekend.

We met Josie and walked up to the cemmetry to do our stuff! Tonight it was chopping down more buddlier and then putting it all in a pile. Everyone did a great job, Josie was so pleased and slightly surprised in how much we got done in around 35 minutes of work! We really did make a difference. Hence why nobody would be gravely disappointed with our work ;-)

Before we went, Balal took some rather snazzy photos as we entered darkness, then we dropped off the tools with our walking group, before heading off for a 5k run.

Balal lead the run, taking us along the canal, onto Brindley Place, past Victoria Square, then back to 1000 Trades and that was job done for the night.
