    Goaty

    Paul had a variety of jobs as he was self employed, for those that don't know he did arb work, fencing, relief lorry driving and other jobs helping people out. Now the inquest has started he has been named and included a link for you to read. http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/hull-east-yorkshire-news/driver-who-died-after-lorry-270759

    The accident that Paul had is in no way related to arb work, I should have made it clear from the start and I do apologise for that. Thanks for the messages and posts they do mean a lot!

    It is with a heavy heart that i have to say my brother passed away this afternoon. The head injuries was just too much for Paul to recover from. He will be greatly missed by many as he was one of the most helpful people you could ever meet, he often put others before himself many a times. Am struggling with words right now but you get the idea of the big void in our family that he has left right now. Thanks for all the messages and posts over this week he would be amazed and therefore this makes me especially proud of him to have had him as my brother.

    Mornings guys, unfortunately it's been a very challenging week, on weds he went for an op to get a drain fitted to help with pressure building, this was in the morning but then rest of the day his levels were up and down all day blood pressure, brain pressure etc that by just gone 9pm he was back in theatre for a major op to remove part of the skull to let the brain expand. He has struggled since and a few more complications have arisen since. Sorry guys but no news is not good news!

It's with great sadness that I have to say that the member goaty was involved in a serious accident on Friday night and is currently in ICU,he has stabilised over night which is great news for us but still in critical condition. Just wanted to let you guys know as he has made some friends on this forum. Will keep you informed of progress. Thanks

    Rainwater harvesting.

    We have looked into this but find payback to long, think was 10 years payback for a 20,000litre system.

    post knockers

    I met Mr bryce last year at a machinery show and found him to be a very helpful chap with my queries, he didn't try to deal with me and move on like some reps can do, he chatted away and made sure I had my answers before I left even with people waiting to see him after me. Can't help but feel that certain people may have exaggerated or even fabricated things about Mr bryce!!

    Pallet Rotator for tractor rear linkage

    Have a look at agriweld website under products and will see a couple of box rotators. Am sure they will be up to the job but they are for mounting on front loader etc.

    Is sewage sludge/cake used to make horticultural compost?

    Sewage cake/sludge is a very restricted product in agriculture it can't just be put here and there as you like, a lot of paperwork and testing is involved in the distrubution of it. It's a very good fertiliser but certain crops cannot be planted after its been applied, vining peas is an example off top of my head I think it's 5 years between been applied and peas been allowed to grow. Hence why a lot of paperwork for traceability. We get a lot of the stuff regularly, only problem we have is that we have 24 hrs to incorporate it into the ground which doesn't always work out to things out of our control ie weather. Myself I wouldn't use it for growing veg personally.
