Maggie's Trip to Tanzania
We are delighted to report that Maggie has safely returned from her three week, field trip to Samuye. Maggie had a very busy schedule, with many important meetings, regarding the Ibingo (Sashita’s project in Samuye). We have yet to hear from Maggie, as she is pretty exhausted from her travels, however we will update you all in the very near future.

We are very grateful to those who supported us at our Craft Stall at the Neighbourhood Centre’s Big Lunch.
It was a super, fun filled event and we were entertained by our Webmaster, Colin Jubb, who gave us a wonderful selection of his beautiful singing and guitar playing of some Scottish songs. We also had a couple of Patsy Kline songs form our own Lesley Lynch, accompanied by Colin on the guitar.
