|Lots of brash to feed lots of fires!|
|Neil brings The Crazy World of Arthur Brown to Speke: Fire Number One|
|Fire Number Two in its infancy|
After lunch, Christine and Andy blazed a trail through the long grass (without being devoured by velociraptors) to start work on more piles of brash across the field. Neil was quick to fulfil the need for a third fire, but more work on the other side of the hedge called for a fourth inferno. This is unprecedented on any MNTV workday I have attended, and the scene began to resemble the opening shot from Apocalypse Now.

|Fire Number Four|
|John & Jenny load up Fire Number Five|
By 3pm we had to reign in our enthusiasm, accept that some brash would have to live for another workday, and let our final fire burn down. The sun had shone, the two groups had got on really well, and all Neil's Christmases had come at once. We got lots done, and hope to be back at Speke again before too long.
Build it and they will come!
