Well it seems that from todays report in our 'Local paper' for 'Local people' That Mr D. has become a 'Local' farmer and has had his application for a 3 bed 'agricultural workers' house turned down - it's amazing how one can become a farmer these days!
Exctract from our local column in this weeks Local Paper ..........
"Meanwhile work has commenced on the new Safari park located opposite the farm. Original planning consent was for a Marina for 100 berths with hotel, pub, restaurant, museum and craft shops, but this has now been shelved to make way for the 10 acre park now owned by former 'Really Wild Show' presenter Terry Nutkins who recently bought Freemans Marsh and built his futuristic home at Hopgrass (soon to be featured on Channel 4's 'Grand Designs' - how to make a silk purse out of a cart barn).
The Park will be home to some of Britains really wildest, dangerous and rare creatures, sources have even suggested that there might be a pair of breeding rabbits and a particularly frocious hedgehog, whilst others have reported the prearation of a goldfish tank."
We hope to obtain more detailed plans from West Berks council and will publish shortly.
