I've now got 61 posts on my thread! How exciting.... Dove, don't worry, I'm not in the slightest put off, rather amused in fact.
In answer to all the queries, I asked the original question after i'd started on the hedge... got cold feet, or rather, saw how much I was going to have to tidy up & started to chicken out! Thanks to your advice I continued to butcher the hedge, just as far back as the boundary. I can't tell you how good it felt to vent with the hedge trimmer and loppers, was really, really stressed with the return to work looming.
I've procrastinated asking the neighbour if her gardener will take away prunings... am a bit concerned they will then present me with a bill, following Hostafan's message re professional gardeners having to pay for what is considered commercial waste. I can but ask, and to be honest, i don't have a contract with them so if they were to present me with bill (which i doubt, I'm just worrying) then i wouldn't have to pay it and could just remind the neighbour about her ghastly son chucking all his fag ends into my garden!
