The winner for July is of course the workhorse of any practical conservation group, the lopper. Just a big pair of scissors really, though there is a limit to what you can cut with them. Note that the person holding them here hasn’t quite got the idea of how to use them – I shall have a word!
This month’s winner is the Fencing Pliers. As you can see here, it looks like a pair of pliers, but with an unusual shape designed for levering staples from wooden posts. Armed with a pair of these pliers and a good hammer, no stock fence can stand!
