  1. Hate the litter in an around my little village. It all seems to be fast food packets from passing cars like has been mentioned. Apart from one layby that had loads of wine bottles in the ditch and them little gas cannisters that kids suck on. Anyway, i've taken being grumpy a step further and come out the other side. I set about litter picking once a month as part of the businesses "Community Days" initiative. The benefits are manyfold. I get an enormous sense of wellbeing, the village becomes a little tidier, I get to catch up with the local guys who offer their time to help, and I get some decent local publicity. The local paper will be running an article on the litter picking antics of me and the guys this month. Click on the link and you'll see the amount we've picked up. And its just the tip of the iceberg. CHAMPION GARDENS - Champion Gardens Blog WWW.CHAMPION-GARDENS.CO.UK WHATS BEEN HAPPENING? WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING? WHATS NEXT IN THE GARDEN?
  2. Petition: Increase the penalty for developers and landowners who remove trees illegally. PETITION.PARLIAMENT.UK It is too easy for a developer to illegally remove trees including, but not only, trees with TPOs and receive a small fine which in no way reflects the value of trees or the profit the developer can gain. We want the financial penalty increased and severe restrictions placed on the lands future use.
  3. Does anyone in the north east hire out the portable stump grinders such as the Alpine magnum? I've 15 stumps to do. Access is only through the house and the garden is on an extremely steep terrace! Might end up being a dig out job. I'm aching already!
  4. When we were 6 years old my mate cracked his dad's brand new stove glass with his head after we ran through the living room and he tripped on the telly wired remote that his dad was using at the time.
  5. Driving along today and a mouse was sat on the passenger seat. Cheeky little beggar had been eating my hat too. Live trap deployed before it eats my wiring!
  6. Thats one of the places they had me climbnig too.....albeit pretty slowly! We set up a zip line over the river and as the last guy went over they loosened the rope and he dipped his arse in! then he had to get the bus home. Some people are just bastards!
  7. "You've been working here a year now Christopher. When you started I thought you were a good worker. Now I know you're fuckin shite!" And he kicks me up the arse in a joking manner...And I go up three steps!
  8. First ever job at a local country estate caravan park. The manager was a legend in the area by the name of Mr Harker. 7 foot tall. Massive beard. "Can you drive a tractor Christopher?" "Yes Mr Harker," "Well take the fuckin handbrake off then!"
  9. Is anyone near Albert Park, Middlesbrough, on the 16th August and wants some easy work. Ive been asked to find someone to help.
