An exceptionally large bunker at Storas farm in Solberg has aroused interest already for a longer period of time. The bunker was built during the lease period of Porkkala and it has probably been used as a fire control bunker.

On Thursday the 11th of September a group of students from the senior high school in Tammisaari arrived to start up the excavation of the bunker.

All of the hundreds of bunkers on the area were blasted in autumn 1955 before the Soviet Union left Porkkala and the area was handed back to Finland. The ruins were covered with dirt and twigs. Now all of this has to be removed, together with the stone blocks from the blasting of the bunker.

The Night of Bonfires was again this year arranged by the village council in collaboration with petpark Lomamäen lemmikkipuisto. Over 100 visitor's showed up! The visitor's were invited to meet the pets of the park and get to know them. The entertainment had a special theme this year, as 70 years have passed since the evacuation of Degerby, due to the lease of the Porkkala area. The music was inspired by the memories of the evacuation, and the secretary of the village concil gave a presentation on the old inhabitants of Torbacka (where the petpark is situated), who used to live in this village before the lease period.
