Hi Arbtalk,

 

I've been away for a while, but keep lurking in the shadows to keep an eye on you lot...

I've run into a massive cluster**** of life-affecting issues (shan't bore you with all the details but in short: Mother in-law seriously ill in Australia so my lady is there. Daughter seriously ill in Lincs, having major arguments with their mum and not getting anywhere towards health. Lost my job in Oxford a few days after having to spend all my money on replacing my broken car so I could do that job. Few other things)

 

So now I'm looking for a job.

But with daughter being in and out of hospital at short notice etc, I don't really want a "proper" job as I want to be able to down tools at no notice and jump in the car. So I was hoping for some hedgelaying!

 

I figured with all the weather we've had this winter there must be some hedges out there that were inaccessible, got delayed etc?

I'm an experienced hedge layer, have been professionally laying hedges for about 15 years.

Fully tooled up, keen as mustard!

I'd consider anywhere within  a 75 mile radius of Grantham, am fully mobile (I live in a large truck)

 

So, anyone need help, or to offload a job they won't have time for before the season ends?

Wrong end of the season really but good luck with your search.

I know how you feel. It's been a harsh winter for work.

Are you just looking for hedge laying or other ground work as well? I'm 45 miles from Grantham and could use help now and then but can't offer a "proper" job.

Thanks for the well wishes people!

 

I know we're on the tail end of the hedgelaying season, but when I was a full time layer there were always people calling me mid february that wanted their jobs done instantly whilst I'd be struggling to get my work (booked well in advance) done before the nesting started.

I figured with all the wet weather this winter there might be some people that got delayed etc and could do with a hand to get all the work done before season's end.

 

Dan Maynard, I've pm'd ya!

Just ask eggs about a proper job,Only works when he wants to top up the funds, or it's well paid work. It's not what you earn, it's what you spend.

Fixed that for you. Les.
