Lawnmower working a treat, scrap on site. Two tables were on site, but have disappeared (come on own up!) They were going to be used on site for BBQs etc. Please make sure you do not alter the combination of the lock when leaving (1 is stuck on there as no-one now knows the combination) spare put on. A strimmer from Rosedale will be given to Bull Meadow. John has repaired the barbed wire (thank you for your work) For Safety reasons, can you please make sure all paths are kept clear.
