Hi Mark!

Geraint and I had a meeting with Naomi and her survey friend last week
(can't remember his name ... Ian Peters maybe??? - ask Naomi)  ... and
during a parting conversation he referred to several encounters he had had
in the past with the dreaded Japanese Knotweed!! Worth asking Naomi for his
contact number at least!

Best wishes,
