Im good at that seemingly Canny Lass!

Delegating is not an easy task. Be proud that you are capable of assessing the situation and knowing:

Who to delegate to

How much to delegate to them

When to delegate

In which manner it should be done

Where the delegating should take place

Knowing why there is a need for delegation in just this instance

... and finally knowing how much of the task in hand you have some aversion to doing yourself.

Truly a skill worth having.

Having said that, I' love to donate a tree. That way, me and other ex-pats would have some 'physical' roots in the town. Maybe the keen gardeners who take such good care of keeping Bedlington in bloom with the hanging baskets etc wouldn't mind being delegated to/asked politely?

I would join the club but I'm not an ex-pat. :unsure:

Sounds good - can I just check though... when you say you want volunteers to plant their own trees - I assume you mean plant a specific tree rather than their own tree. I assume you aren't suggesting people should decide what to plant and where?

If the project comes off, and I should know better after next week, trees will be supplied.

I went for a walk last night and was horrified to see the trees recently planted along the path from the corner of the cemetery towards Hartlands have all been systematically snapped. I was heading in the direction of 20 acres and those trees were untouched thankfully but I don't know if any others were damaged.

I have no appropriate words for whoever was behind this mindless vandalism

And even if you caught those who committed the vandalism would any words resolve the situation.

If it's someone, or a group, with a personal vendetta then I guess replacing them would only mean more time and money was spent and the mindless vandalism will probably be repeated.

I would hope that the trees can be left as they are and will recover next year.

They are being examined today to see Alan.

Fingers crossed! It's the right time of year for hard pruning (this, of course, is pruning of a more drastic nature) but if they've managed to root they stand a chance. Hope the little (or big) beggars are caught and punished. I don't wish to sound hard or inhumane but I think they should have the same degree of hard pruning to their hands.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
