Funnily enough it was his first day! Have to laugh at the clothing some of them turn up in. Even some of the regulars don’t wear wellies or waterproofs. 1 of the women was refused entry onto the bus the other day to go home because her clothes were so muddy.
You don’t supply waterproofs and wellingtons to encourage your staff to work in foul weather it will increase productivity at harvest time gives them a feeling there are appreciated and they will work harder for you . you give a little bit to gain a lot . This has been proven at one of the largest veg growers I get involved with. It’s a win-win situation. If you supply it with your logo on it it’s tax relief on it as well.

How does it work with tax, surely they are not all self employed? Cant believe you can get that number of staff for two hours for £20, do they get a free veg pack to or anything, it would barely cover fuel and washing their clothes after, you must be expecting a massive labour cost increase soon.

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.
