At the time of writing, we are still two weeks away from our Swahili Soiree, keeping our fingers crossed that tickets are selling well. We'll let you know next month!
Meanwhile, we have excellent news of the honey harvest in Nkokoto. This has just started and, with 66 hives to work on, will take at least a couple of weeks. The first honey gathered was from the hives we gave to two widows who have fourteen children beween them. Tabu's husband Juma was the village chairman for several years and Shoma's husband died of cerebral malaria, still a scourge in Tanzania. It's encouraging to see 'Minchinhampton money' turning into 'Nkokoto honey', in the phrase coined by Alan Vaughan in his on-screen advertisement for us at his Movie Nights.
Here's another date for your diary: 16th and 17th November. Gerry Robbins has provided us with another of his murder mystery plays which are always so popular that tickets sell out quickly, so please look out for the posters and make sure you don't miss out.
