Came down to auger holes for the posts which inform local people about Manor Farm Park. Elf and Safety said “you cannot bring a powered machine onto our park” (They own it now you see!) so I pointed out I was insured, and would not need any help so there were no health issues. It has all been banned since “a councillor brought a chainsaw onto a park in Kings Norton, and nearly caused a tree to fall on another councillor and his wife and child!” This made me wonder on the opposite of survival of the fittest. I pointed out that this would be a five minute job, as opposed to the 3 hours it took us last time. He was not moved. Just think – we could employ a hundred people to do this with teaspoons, which could last a week.
