Mafeking was like this

It’s now called “Mahikeng” but when they were besieged there during the second Boer war the troops must have been exceeding pleased to hear the relief column was nearly with them.

To those who are suffering a state of siege mentality brought on by the enforced closure of the Wheatsheaf  in Edith Weston, relief is at hand. The official re opening is on Saturday 3rd December.

Food will be available from the start but Christmas bookings are not being taken. All very much suck it and see for now.
