Bob Osborne, Forest Fuels transport manager said, "When we arrived it was quite astonishing to see. There were vans and workers everywhere, I’ve never seen anything quite like it".

One of the near neighbours has kindly allowed rear access to the garden area through their bungalow’s garage and garden.
