Wherry. June 18th

sees Halesworth U3A departing by coach to Ely for a day out. As I write a few tickets are still available on the second coach at £10 for members and £15 to all others. The coach leaves at 9am returning at about 6.30pm. Tickets and further information are available from The Cut Box Office.

At our open to all talk in May Linda Pargeter gave us a lively illustrated talk about the restoration of the Norfolk Wherry Maud and the continuing work of the Maud Wherry Trust. A real story of love and persistence told with enthusiasm and passion. For July we return once again for our monthly talk before our summer break to The Cut when we will hear about the work of the local painter Sir Alfred Munnings. For those who may be

Hope and Aid Direct

THE Cut has now been a home for the arts in Halesworth for almost 20 years. Two decades of providing the local community with a centre for live performance, music, film, dance, classes, or simply a place to have a chat and a coffee. With all those comings and goings it's no wonder the building is showing its age. In 2019 we are aiming to raise £100,000 to pay for repairs and improvements so we can continue to provide Halesworth with the best possible venue

for 2020 and beyond. You are invited to the '2020 Launch


Friday 5th July. Come and

Party on join us for a

SINCE the last convoy returned on April 8th those concerned with the charity have been busy catching up, recharging the emotional batteries, and carrying out necessary repairs. Once again the side curtains on the ‘big rig’ were damaged but this time it was a long scuff and a small hole caused by a careless driver of another truck.

The worldwide situation deteriorates daily with the focus on Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Venezuela and UNHCR states that so far this year 15,459 refugees have crossed the Mediterranean into Europe (mainly Greece, Italy, Malta and Spain) and 427 have lost their lives. Since 2017 a total of 2,700 lives have been lost mainly in crossing to the Greek islands and from Libya.


spokeswoman summed it up, ‘The simple truth is that refugees would not risk their lives on a journey so dangerous if they could thrive where they are’. It says it all. Since writing those words a couple of days ago UNHCR has announced that another boat loaded with refugees from Libya has capsized in the Mediterranean and 70 men, women and children are feared drowned. Such a tragedy was not even mentioned in the newspapers. Nearer to home a snippet of news buried in the inner pages of the newspaper has announced that two boats with 14 refugees, including children, have

been ‘rescued’ whilst attempting to cross the English Channel. What is their future?

The refugee crisis

is a global problem and I believe it can only be dealt with globally. The world seems hell bent on protecting its own borders yet more and more of our problems are global issues, like global warming, rising sea levels, plastic pollution and the ever growing problem of population growth! One

matter has greatly

impressed me recently. We have always known that

Hope and Aid Direct was 100% a volunteer organisation and that nobody received a wage or salary. As you know the convoys comprise two groups, the vehicles which each have a driver and co-driver who sleep in the back of the lorries, or, occasionally, in motels at overnight stops and the second group of ‘flyers’ who fly out to meet the trucks on arrival, where they help break bulk and re-pack and help with the aid distribution.

I had always

assumed that the airborne party had their flight and cheap hotel expenses, paid by the charity. Not so; to my great admiration each volunteer is required to be self-financing and they are always there when needed. The UN does what it can in providing basics like tents, plastic sheeting, emergency food supplies and water,


without charities like Hope and Aid Direct and many others like it, of all nationalities and creeds working in every trouble spot in the world and overcoming superhuman difficulties, to show that someone, somewhere, cares, the lot of the many millions of refugees would be grim indeed. Thanks be to God.

Our son Charles and wife Bev are having building work done at their home in Ingatestone and so, for a few weeks, will be unable to collect your kind donations. But our garage is spacious and like a well known comedy show on tv ‘we are open all hours’. Thank you. Margaret and Jack Storer
