Beat this for size!


Well if Mr Howe wants to be competitive about it (NCE last week)!

The Eden Millennium Project in Cumbria is to erect a granite rock weighing 50 tonnes as a memorial. It is presently lying halfway up a scree slope in a quarry near Shap, and it has to be moved some 20km up to the A6 near Penrith.

Sponsorship for the move, preferably not on a sledge, would be much appreciated.
