Thanks to a bolt of lightning followed by 3 weeks of bureaucratic rubbish, we have been without internet access for 3 weeks, but finally we're back on line and celebrating Friday's Fences once again.
This week a gate on our property. When we bought this property 40 or so years ago, it was part of what had been a working dairy. This gate provided access to the dairy for milk trucks, tractors, farm vehicles etc. We use it to drive up to the cattle yards behind the dairy. At some stage the local council decided to seal part of the road and in doing so they changed the road level without any consultation. As a result our road to the dairy became unusable as the road level dropped about a metre leaving this gate and our track with a steep one metre drop to the road!!
We no longer have goats so the dairy has not been used for some years, but it would have been nice if they had asked us before they acted.
