There are stories of famous people like Princess Michael of Kent and the Duke and Duchess of Atholl. There are the Trechikov and Sydney Carter artwork tales. The village rises briefly into national awareness due to a dispute with the Catholic Church over a dog because she was a Church going Doberman. The bronze bust of the late great King Makgoba, leader of the Makgoba tribe, disappears and causes a political furor amongst the locals.There are magic mushrooms, marijuana and cocaine busts. There are trips into other parts of South Africa with the female trucker from Haenertsburg, the villagers help a local motor neuron sufferer realise his dream to “run” the Comrades Marathon and many more characters and events.
