Sultry June days here at Graig Wen…a good time then for sticky manual work preparing the lower fields for tent camping this summer. We sent Jonny down there and he quickly unleashed hell on the bracken with some serious strimmer action.  He spent the day clearing all the Valley View pitches on the first field and came back plastered in grass. Then, somewhat unexpectedly, along came Gwilym with his mighty air conditioned tractor… An hour later and 4 acres were flattened.  Some nice new pitches seem to have emerged. Meanwhile John manfully chainsawed and split some ash he’d felled in the winter and stacked it ready for our log burner this autumn. Men and machines huh? I spent the afternoon sitting on the terrace sipping chilled elderflower presse from our neighbour’s garden and having a nice chat to a journalist from the Rough Guide. As colleagues from my former PR career will point out, some things never change…
