We were going to do this job just before Christmas but treacherous road conditions meant that the workday was cancelled, as you can see there were no such problems today.
By the time the first cake break was called, both fires were burning well and getting rid of plenty of scrub, it was already possible to see a big improvement.
More cake was consumed mid-afternoon and after this we took out a bit more scrub from around the edges, the excellent weather and lovely work site along with good company meant that everyone seemed to want to keep going!
Another brilliant day.
