I do! Spiffing isn't it? :lol:

Hedge’s wife said to her husband when he got home from work “how absolutely ghastly for you Hedgy old bean!” He replied “yah, one had sell ones small Faberge egg on ebay.” “You know the one shnookums? The one from the downstairs kazi that had been collecting dust all these years since we sacked the slave?”

Mrs Highhedge asks “What about the money to pay the Gypsy for cutting the hedge? Where shall we find the other £20 from?” Hedgy replies “One will have to sell my broken golf club, the one which I beat my last winning opponent with!” “Positively splendiferous!” shrieked Mrs hedgesgalore…Champagne on the veranda with canapés?!?! :oops: :lol:

You just wonder if they were thinking they could save the money on hedge cutting but have now had to pay more in fines. I bet they said "oh my whoops a daisy!!!!" when they received the fine. :lol:
They're obviously wealthy, and they don't mind trivial little fines like this. The court should send the bailiffs round to cut the hedge back to 2m high!

Hi

The court will just continue to fine them, but the Council can go round and cut it down to its action hedge height, should they wish.

Or jail them, for repeated or serious breaches of the court's order.

Hi

Gaol is not an option as the offence only attracts a level 3 fine i.e. a maximum of £1000.00 and not a custodial sentence.

Aphids can't take the glory for that one, it was scarab beetles and kitty cat spit. :lol: It is wonderfully creative! :)
