From Steel to Stone


We definitely have an entrepreneur or two in the family. Habershon Land is on its second project (the first was in Glastonbury), this time in Leigh-on-Mendip. Talk about going back to our childhood. We used to ride our bikes up the hill from Coleford, and across to Leigh-on-Mendip (past the scary quarry) where there was a very nice sweet shop. Later in life we spent quite a few evenings at The Bell. Lovely village!

I’ve just been doing some digging and found these Parish Council Minutes giving approval to the development. As long as they don’t block the view from Yew Tree Cottage with the new trees they should be good to go!

Good luck to you, Will and Jamie. We senior Habershons are so proud that you’re keeping the name going!

Christmas Quiz – 2017

Greetings, Habs! Paul submitted the Christmas Quiz on December 11th. I hope that whoever wins this year will be as prompt in 2018. I shall be setting it to upload on December 23rd. If anyone needs it sooner than that, please advise. Here are the rules:

This quiz is open to any household that contains a Habershon, a née Habershon, or a commenter.

One point will be awarded for each correct answer. One point will be deducted/added for each household with more than/fewer than four participants over the age of ten. For example, if there are ten participants, six points will be deducted. And if there are only two participants, two points will be added.

The team with the highest score will receive a £12 (or equivalent currency) Amazon gift certificate. If there are more than eight entries a second prize will be awarded. Correct answers and the team results will be published on the website as soon as possible after the closing date.

No looking up answers on the internet or in reference books. All answers must come straight from your heads. Submit your answers to Paul no later than 11pm GMT on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2017.

As usual, no correspondence will be entered into, and the Quizmaster’s decision is final. Only one entry per household.
