Leak Fixed

It was a bit scary seeing our lawn being dug up, but it had to be done. New trench dug, a layer of sand put in the bottom, new pipe work laid then covered in more sand then the topsoil. So glad we got a man with a digger because it would have taken ages to dig by hand with the amount of stone that came out of the ground. So far we’ve taken a trailer load to some friends for their garden, taken 30 bags to the tip plus there’s more to dispose off. The ones in the photo still need to be broken up and we’ve kept some for ourselves to make steps in the garden. Holding our breath as we are still waiting for the water bill to arrive.
