Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning,

What's happened to the weather...........lets hope it's short lived.

Just the weekly update:-

Andy and the team have changed the blasting times slightly this week and may possibily depending on their progress may increase them.

The intention is to conduct two rock blasting between 10 and 4pm daily this week, the reason is to speed up the process and minimise the long term disruption to you as the hammering/pekking should be reduced as a result.. The site team will obviously drop in the notices to you and give you a knock.

Don't forget is you want to have a chat to me I will be on site every Wednesday between 9 and 12 pop in and see me I will be happy to discuss any questions you may have about the project. (or email me or Sarah at This week you may notice a smal cabin at the front of the site, that's where I will be.

Thanks again for your patience.
