After such a miserable winter we were a little apprehensive about arranging a spring walk again in early April, but in the event we were blessed with one of the loveliest days of the year until then.


Sue and John Cane had mapped out a walk in the Chrishall area of Essex. It took us through several interesting and beautiful villages, across fields, through woodland, along tracks and some minor roads, about nine miles in all, with wonderful views most of the way. We saw a herd of deer, swallows, brimstone butterflies, and the first green shoots in some of the hedges. Twenty-three of us set out at 11.30am, equipped with maps and little ‘goody-bags’ containing a drink, a snack bar and crisps. We had our picnic lunch in the churchyard of Strethall Church, and the last walkers returned to Chrishall Church just after 4.30pm. All in all it was a superb day, and we are so grateful to Sue and John for all the thought and work that went into planning the event.


Our next event to raise the money needed by the Diocese of Mt. Kenya Central to complete the dispensary at Kambiti is to be a ‘Madajazz evening’, on 21st June. This will be a chance to hear about and buy handmade and fairly traded handbags: bags of all shapes and sizes, beautiful colours, lovely designs, and in a variety of fabrics. Do come and join us for a glass of wine or soft drink and an interesting evening in the Holy Trinity Church meeting room at 7.30pm on Friday 21st June.
