How much do you like your neighbour?  ;D


I'd do it for a couple of pints and the promise that they might look after my animals when they went away.


Other than that I cost my time at £15/hour.

We're big on barter in these parts.  A butchered lamb, good vegetables, a year's supply of jams and pickles ....?

Same here we like to barter rather any cash payment.
