It's Osmanthus fragrans - the Kew website says in the UK it's best grown in a glasshouse or conservatory or against a warm wall

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

Panda - they're installing a defib. machine in Waitrose down in the village, so if I need one can you get the train up here, there's a bus from the station to the end of this road and it goes past Waitrose - I'm sure the driver will let you hop off and pick it up on your way here

I'm not at all sure about it Philippa, but the shape and texture of the leaves and the furry stems remind me of one that grows in a park up the road from our old home .......

 like this one - I remember seeing new shoots one spring and being surprised by how sturdy and furry they were - but whether they looked exactly like the new shoot in the OPs photo I can't remember - it was a long time ago .....................

Definitely an ash tree.   Unless they have a very big garden that they wish to turn into a shady woodland, they need to dig that out pretty soon.
