Hi Folks,

  We have some new neighbours who moved in a few weeks ago, just up the road.  It seems that they're keen gardeners - I know this because it's what they told my husband.  So, as keen gardeners, they need to tidy things up a bit so what better way to do it than to cut down the hedge (containing beech, holly, hawthorn etc., a good home and shelter for hedge sparrows, wrens, bank voles, hedgehogs [if you're lucky], et al) at the bottom of the garden, and replace it with a fence (containing pressure treated timber).  Great!
