Well that was Christmas Happy New Year to you all

December has just flown by, & since attending the Patron Contest back in November  we have covered a fair few meters & now we are already into 2017. Have updated the gallery with just a few from the latest jobs. Dare I say the weather is holding as well at the moment but still got maybe the worst 3 months to go yet, so fingers crossed. After a bit of a blank during December the competition season will carry on with the next local one being on the 29th Jan over Mappowder way more info from Mr I Croad 01258 471021.
