A new set of fenceposts has been installed around Tonford field.

The old posts were only five years old but a large number were rotting at the base and starting to collapse. The original barbed wire and netting is still in good condition, so has been retained. The new posts have been hammered in halfway between the original ones, which haven’t yet been removed, so there are now twice as many posts as you would normally get in a length of fencing, and from certain angles it looks like a veritable forest as the photo shows! We will probably remove the old posts eventually, but that will be a long job, as there are three or four large staples to be pulled out of each one, and we will then be left with the task of disposing of several hundred posts!
