A gate has been opened    Issue 4-5 1427 S.R.

Aye, but it was not the South Farthing Gate, unfortunately. The mayor confined us all to our burrows for almost an entire day while this new gate was constructed: the Rushock Gate in Needlehole. Being of curious nature many hobbits, incuding myself, have already sneaked a peek in that wondrous new place: Yondershire. My first concern was that some hobbits claim to be of "Lotho's bounders". Lotho as in son of Lobelia! No doubt we'll soon learn more about that.
Some expeditions have already been planned: a Historical field trip and a inn crawl! You'll read more about it here in the Gazette.

But wait, don't spend all your time in the new region! There is lots to do in the "old"  Shire as well!
