Subject: Roger Lovejoy v. Mr and Mrs Townsend (case 7PL04294)

Dear Tanya Johnson.
I have just received you letter of 23rd, wherein you ask me to discuss the possibility of mediation.
My first query is how do you envisage the mediation? Is it a meeting amongst all parties and yourself, or do you usually have separate meeting with each party and where would you consider having such meetings? Would they/could they be done by correspondence?
Would you also tell me when you were first assigned to this case and have you had the time to read all the bundles etc.
Mediation would be preferable, socially, but the defendants have shied away from responding to any representations in the past.
I look forward to your views and suggestions as to how mediation may be undertaken.
Thank you very much for your offer.
Generally I am inclined to support the unconventional and wild, but neighbours, Kay and Steve, seem unable or unwilling to make a secure place for their 'Black Sheep'.
Today is the third time I have had to chase them off and the response from their 'owners' is not very helpful nor forthcoming in making any permanently effective resolution.
I managed to catch one with a young cabbage in its mouth, which it dropped on me shouting at it.
I do not want Kay and Steve to foster the idea that I will tolerate the sheep incursions. I am neither happy to chase them off nor to chase them about and round them up.
Consequently I've written to Kay and Steve asking them to make defined plans to prevent further problems and to be prepared to make reparations in future.
28th May 00:58 Have emailed Michal and Steve to check the letter.
29th May 15.40 Steve is ok with the draft letter so must chase up Michal
3rd June 12:10 Michal has agreed to the letter as is, so will tidy it up and get a print off.
13rd June 08:52 Vera has just come to report the sheep are out and about again -:- Later said she had talked to Kay who said 'they' may get rid of the two males as they were the trouble, the females don't escape, asif.
Sure I didn't have to give him or her a name.
I found 'my' first hedgehog on the land around midnight 27/28th June. He was just down from triangle field entrance, sat in the right-hand tyre track as you descend the path.
Worried that someone in a late travelling vehicle could do a number on it, I carried it down to my compost heap. I'm a bit concerned that I took it some 100 yards from its 'home' but I was a bit excited which played into my possessive nature.
So I have a hedgehog; how cool is that?
Jan 8th 2015 Haven't seen one since, anywhere!
