PROGRESS 25 May 2016
1. Fox Hill sign re-fixed, HV jackets and road warning signs used! While the team were executing this task, a giant articulated low loader piled high with over 30 empty waste skips thundered down the hill towards the village, ripping off branches as it went. A few minutes later Jon had a call from a damsel in distress, who was stuck in her car on the Codicote Rd near the mill, where the road was blocked by a large tree branch. So, Paul & Jon, like mediaeval knights, shot off, to pick up some road cones to temporarily mark the obstruction. On the way, they had a discussion with the police who managed to apprehend the the culprit in Codicote. Last heard of, the lorry was parked up at the side of the road in Codicote. After coffee, the intrepid pair, returned to move the branch to the roadside, and retrieve our cones. David has already got this saga recorded in colour photos on the BWP website.
2. Meanwhile, the less photogenic BWP members, were trimming the bushes overhanging the path at Roy Ingram’s house, and tarting up the north side of the Commons Lane/Claggy Rd junct. I must mention here that Tony, all by himself, edged up the grass on the offending corner, which would have been worth a silver-gilt at least, at Chelsea!
