Roadwork repairs

Friday, November 30th 2018

No rest for Ian's last day. The first job of the morning was to fill all the potholes which had surfaced on the access road. This started out by filling the trailer with aggregate from near the bus shelter…

...and filling each hole up all along the road. 

The next job was to compact the aggregate down using a wacker plate so that it hopefully doesn't come loose again with future cold spells. 

The jobs this afternoon included preparing the coppice site for tomorrow's Winter Worky Day, including marking any trees to be kept and preparing the fire site. Meanwhile Ian has been busy tidying up the chainsaw store as well as sharpening all the chainsaws, the polesaw and hedgetrimmer.
