The gardeners took luddites to a corner of the large field where a large heap of cut hedges and
trees were piled. The fire base in the corner of the field.
Jim is a skillful fire raiser starting the fire with his fire lighters and dry wood. A handicap on the day was that the cut wood was wet but Jim got the fire started and by lunch time we had burnt all the big pile left for us. The warden was impressed. A good mornings work with John taking photos .
