I work opposite the Malling playing field which today has a number of men cutting up a tree that fell over the river last week.
Surely this is a perfect opourtunity to claim some free fire wood for the waterloo bonfire?
Has anybody had a word with them yet as they could even put the timber in the right place instead of lugging it away?

Sorry i thought 'Waterloo Logging' was a slang term to describe the membership!

It might be cos most of the bonfires seem to be made of wooden pallets which burn very fast & brightly but don't have much of a core to burn throughout the night.
Also, it's green willow they've chopped up which would take a while to get alight, and the larger parts of the trunk might not burn away during the night.

wet wood is very smokey as well. Good for cricket bats though!

Well wether you want to use it for bonfire or cricket bats its still still sitting there.
I'm sure that although wet the pallets generally used for the bonfire will eventually light the wood and keep it going all night.
Maybe someone very local could store it in the hope it dries out?

A good idea with fallen trunks is for someone, with skills that I do not possess, take the middle out and make it a seat. It would look great on the riverbank. It would be a shame to simply throw it away or to burn it.

Unfortunately I do not think they are big enough jr,
At a guess they are only a foot or two across
Shame though.

Ugh, you give TP an inch and he takes a mile with eugenics and other wackadoodle stuff. I do sense though that the power is... more
I may not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to make an ass of yourself.
