Bumper crop from the vegetable garden!

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

Amongst his many talents, Job is also an accomplished gardener.  He, with Terry’s help have been growing a few vegetables that will be for sale during our steam gala (coming soon).


All joking aside, we keep finding tiny carrots growing around the MPLR.  Where is the seed coming from?  How do they get here?  Any gardeners out there who can throw a little light on this mystery, please drop as a line.


Surprise discovery down at the pit

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

As Hamish and the lads were clearing some overgrown brush they unearthed an old disused workings. A look through the MPLR archive revealed nothing so we assume the tunnel must have been here for years.  For the time being the lads blocked up the entrance and we are contacting the Moreton Cave Rescue team to see if they would like to explore the workings.  Watch this space!
