On 4 February 2019, Barry and Becky Gransden came to speak at a meeting in Child Okeford, where they gave an illustrated talk on how they came to be involved in education in Zambia, and how their interest has developed, leading to regular annual visits, head teachers' conferences, activity on behalf of the charity Future Pillars Zambia — and not least to the accumulation of materials to be shipped to Zambia in giant containers. An audience of over 30 people, some of whom had already contributed materials for the container, found this a gripping narrative. For Barry and Becky it was the first time they had put together a talk of this kind: now they aim to refine it, and hopefully carry their story to other interested audiences.

Colehill Methodists wanted to make sure Gwyneth leaves us well fed! We had a roast dinner at church (no meat for Gwyneth, of course) followed by a service. We presented Gwyneth with a rose: Heaven Scent — we liked the name and the rose — plus some things for when she's camping, goats and chickens for Africa (not live ones, but it shows we listen to her sermons) and a cheque for her to...
