A seasonal ditty penned by Jackie Fowler

The holly and the bramble,
When they are both well-grown,
Comes the call from Matt Hawkins
To chop them all down.

And while you are at it
Cut the silver birch too.
Put the wood on the fire
And paint all the stumps blue.

If you feel like a change,
Why not re-site a stile,
Dig a hole for a fence post
Or hang a gate for a while?

Have you signed the risk assessment?
Are you wearing thick gloves?
Does the job need a helmet?
Will things fall from above?

Stephen calls time for coffee
And again time for lunch.
With Brian’s biscuits and our anecdotes
We’re a well-contented bunch.
