A Great Start to the New Year

After the Christmas break Mr Councilworker was back at the site on Monday 4 Jan and this time brought a friend with him in a Bobcat.

A few hours later and we had the block earthworks completed.

With the trench digger attachment on the Bobcat the trench for the mains water piping was dug much more easily than by hand.

The trencher was traded for the post hole attachment and the holes were dug for the fence posts... ...he'd finished in the time it would have taken to dig one hole by hand (with a crowbar).

Our group of five helpers proceeded to lay the pipe and backfill the trench.

Later in the week one of the Heath Team organisers managed to get these two huge bales of Pea Straw from a farmer for FREE!!!
