Hedge coppicing in dry Drayton

Coppicing all of the hedge plants road side between the A14 and Dry Drayton.
This will allow us to be able to plant new hedge plants in the gaps and dig the ditch out field side to aid with Drainage in Dry Drayton. Tim Green is undertaking the clearing of the brambles and coppicing. Roger Pinner will plant the new hedge and Julian will dig the ditch out on the js130. Weather permitting we should have this completed in 10 days.

Freelanders come in 2wd

I found out today that a freelander is not all it looks to be. My car has gone for a service and a loan car was delivered. I went to see Julian and to view the ditching progress. On retreat to the comfort of the office I swung the freelander around only to find it refused to move. I looked for leavers and buttons and resorted in ringing duckworth to ask how to engage 4wd only to be told its a 2wd sir.
