I've just found out that my regular shearer and gang organiser is stuck in NZ.
Apart from my having to find someone else, I started to wonder how many nz lads come over on average, so how short staffed are we going to be this season? My ganger usually got 2 or 3 every season.

25% of shearers are foreign but account for a higher % of the sheep shorn, there is no problem for them to come over and do not have to quarantine, but I have heard the issue is if they will be able to get home after

Is he the one that’s been going over there for over 40yrs or are we thinking of someone else!!!

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
