Great. And we can go back to some of the early history again when Carol comes – but Ray, given that you came early on – how did you get on with the neighbours?
Ray: Ok, well it was pretty good when I first arrived. We got on well with all the locals that were around here and had a bit to do with some of them. It wasn’t until after the Terania Protest that things started to sour a bit with some of the locals, some of the older locals. Before that yeah it was great. But we still had good relations with some of them.
