20180327_100329     Our new tipper tractor, bought with money generously made available by the Mynydd y Bettws Wind Farm Community Fund saw action for the first time this morning in Coed Gwilym Park. We had a delivery of cement and stone dust which we would normally have to barrow in wheelbarrows from the bowling green to the Canoe Store. The labour saving effect of the new tipper on backs and arms is amazing. The tipper can take three times the weight of one wheelbarrow and the five speed motor makes the pushing of it easy.
