I arrived at Stepney Banks a little early, and I was talking to Sara, the task owner, about the task we were going to complete tonight.

Sara explained that she would like it if we could tidy up the path, that the riders take the horses and ponies along (to and from the upper yard).

Apparently the riders find it difficult, as the ponies especially like to bimble along and enjoy eating the grass/weeds!

Myself, Elliot, Aimee, Rae, Louise and Dan all got stuck in with various tools and brushes, sweeping and pulling out the grass/weeds.

It was a great team effort and we had made a big difference at the end. Apologies as I forgot to take a group photo!

Good luck to Dan (Last wheelbarrow photo!) as he moves away to Wolverhampton! Thank you for all your effort and hard work, hopefully you might be able to come back and visit, or do some GG tourism in Birmingham!

Congratulations to Elliot on reaching 15 good deeds tonight, a brilliant achievement!

I had a lovely walk home along the Quayside and took a photo which I've also included.
