    Been a while since we have posted anything, so thought I would rejoin the fold with these old articles the boss found a few days ago. Hope all is good with everyone and the world is treating you well :)

    September is starting to fill the early mornings with a familiar Autumnal feeling. There has been some beautiful early morning sun and bright blue skies. Works are progressing well in all areas, wet spotting near Charlbuy, drainage near Hinckley and the house works at Stratford upon Avon...

    Last day of summer today. . Boohoo!! August you have been a wonderful yet annoying month. Warm and busy, rain and busy, vandalism, busy and annoying. This week has been no different, only 4 days but seems like 6. On the plus side we are no longer in Lydney, the client is happy and so are we as...

    Another week down and thankfully some rain., not near enough to be honest but things are looking a little more green. Been a very busy week this week, all was going well until a lovely bunch of small minded imbeciles decided to smash the windows on our tractors and digger at our site in Lydney...

    Halfway through August and finally the hot spell breaks. The rain has started around our head office and looking at the clouds in the distance they go from blue skies, white fluffy clouds to grey and hold on Mother it’s going to be a rough one. There is no denying it rain is needed in these...

    Hurtling towards August and it seems like the weeks are flying by at a quickening pace. Weather is still rosy although as previously stated it is starting to have adverse effects now. The main one being everyone saying “It’s too hot!” On the plus side, ice cream sales are up and on the news the...

    Friday is on us once more! A bit cooler this week although boss lady was not enjoying the heat. Here is the “Famous Five” version of what was said “Golly it is a tad warm today, whoever mentions it being not warm enough is a real pongo and I will have stern word with them the silly Billy’s”. I...

    Another glorious week in this pleasant and peaceful land of ours. The sun is shining, the skies are blue and if I hear one more person tell me it’s too hot I will scream. That said, I am sure a little water will not go amiss, so long as it is for a few hours between midnight and 4 am!! Works...

    As we race towards the end of June and the solstice has passed, some say winter is on its way but to me summer has just started. Glorious sunshine, busy, busy, busy and vitamin D levels on the rise, even for us office wallers. A little wet spotting near Henley in Arden to kick the week off for...

    Yes, a business purchase. We have found that our clients really do appreciate the aerial shots as well as drainage plans. Some have said it is easier to locate a drain from the drone photo than it is off of a plan!

    Past couple of weeks have been what is now becoming the norm for this time of year. Phone calls going "Where are you?" . . . "Can you be here yesterday?" . . . "That price you gave me in 1982, does it still stand?" . . . but my favourite . . "Hi it's Bernard here from scamming claims, I would...
