Great Excavations

For several months, the Parish has resounded to the noise of the drills and angle grinders of contractors intent on bringing facilities for cable communication to every house in the land. Hardly a road exists that does not bear the scars of the trenching operation to bury the green plastic trunking past every residence. Some concern has been expressed about the damage to trees, and the Parish Council has posted notices asking to be advised of any instances of avoidable damage to trees.
