    machine tools

    we helped to clear the last bits of gear from the Myford site at Beeston last year, so sad to see all this and all the skills and knowledge come to an end,

    New Tram

    a mere dropin the ocean at when put beside HS2 ,millions spent on a white elephant that will disrupt lives and communitys for little or no gain for ordinary folk ,why dont they improve the existing rail infrastructure and make provision for more freight as the HS2 will not be used to carry it ,and then uprate all the local lines to give more capacity for commuters travelling locally between cities,

    The Railway Inn

    this used to be a great Shippo,s house, but druggies started to use it and I may be wrong but one of the former tenants was reputed to be involved in it all ,it was latterly a really nice restaurant, and has now turned into a tea shop,

    Home wine making

    I used to make loads of elderberry wine, a good tip is to cut up an overripe banana and chuck it in the mix,it takes the strong tannin taste away that the skins impart,lovely stuff ,our french friends would not believe it was not made from grapes
