Since we last went to print, the Country has gone into lockdown due to Covid-19. This has sadly meant the cancellation of all events and many businesses closed for the foreseeable future. It has been a rough few weeks for us all and we have a very long road to travel before normality returns, if it ever will.

In this issue we visit The Brickworks Museum, learn about the history of the Shire horse, John Selley of The Ferguson Club and John Lindley share their restoration adventures with us. There
