A new full-time member of the team, Declan Carroll, joined us in November. He has fitted in well and is currently developing his skills as a groundsman. He will be trained and assessed through the NPTC for chainsaw use in the New Year.

We have had a challenging end to the year with Dax Hedges and Tom Davies off on long-term sick leave. We hope to be back to full capacity in the New Year.

We have recently purchased a tracked woodchipper and a replacement 7″ chipper to add to the fleet of equipment. A new Mitsubishi tipper truck has also been ordered for delivery in the New Year.
