PRAECONIUM: In vico Eboraciense, Burton in valle Lunae nomine, tabernam abhinc octo annos cives una sumunt. Negotium ut co-operativum agunt. Cives triclinium tabernae addiderunt, cuius dedicatio die Saturni proximo acta est. Homo notissimus Vaccarius Rochdalensis, alias Michaelus Harding, multis carminibus argutis cantatis, exordium triclinio dixit et placentam caeremonialem secavit. Omnes plauserunt, placentam gustaverunt et laetissimi riserunt. Triclinium « Café XXVII » visitare debetis, si in via A.DCLXXXVII iter faciatis. Zenobia cibum optimum coquit, Helena tabernam agentissime componit, et omnes in vico sunt fraterni.
Burton is at the half-way point on the John o’ Groats – Lands End cycle route.
Advert: In the Yorkshire village of Burton in Lonsdale, eight years ago the villagers together took over the shop. They run the business as a co-operative., The villagers have added to the shop a restaurant, which was opened Saturday last. A famous celebrity, the Rochdale Cowboy, also known as Mike Harding, sang many great songs, delivered the opening speech and cut the ceremonial cake. Everyone clapped, tasted the cake and enjoyed themselves splendidly. You must visit the restaurant, Café 27, if you are travelling on the A687. Zaneb cooks excellent food, Helen runs the shop most efficiently, and everyone in the village is friendly.
