A couple of hours work is required at the village hall to bring the hedge under control. I would appreciate it if you could give a couple of hours to help. Tools such as loppers, bush saws etc would be useful. It is hoped to burn the resulting brash to stop the river getting blocked. If you could let me know if you can help it would assist in organising the work.
Thanks in anticipation

Our speaker, Maurice Steele, is a retired farmer from Eskdale who has combined sheep farming with a lifelong interest in photography and love of wild flowers. His presentation "It should have been stopped!" traces the evolution of the Lake District from its geological formation to the present day - a blend of brilliant photography and beautiful music, with commentary on man's impact on the landscape over the years and just a touch of good-natured humour.

Don’t be beguiled by that harmless looking exterior – those twinkly eyes, the gap toothed smile, and the quaint old ways – you should never mess with a little old woman.
Jan Blake gets right down to the business of what happens when we misjudge our elders. Meet the old women who aren’t so much aged, as ageless, and with the superpowers to match. Be so foolish as to underestimate them and you’ll get everything you deserve. Expect a dose of powerful geriatric magic, transformation and a good serving of comeuppance!
