David Comber started working for the Mitchell family fifty years ago, straight from school.  He first worked at Telston Nursery, Otford and then transferred to Sheet Hill Farm where he became a valuable member of the full-time staff there.  His main tasks included pruning most of the pollinator trees on the farm, driving the high-reach hedgecutter and unloading the picking trains with a Kramer forklift.  At the staff Christmas meal in the Papermakers, Plaxtol we marked his retirement with a collage of photographs over the years and a model tractor depicting his two dogs going along for the ride. We all miss him as he begins his well-earned retirement, but we will still see him around the farm doing some shooting and ferreting.  Good luck David!
