The next visit to Penyem will take place from 27 November 2012. Andy is going to check on progress with a number of projects, particularly the main one taking place at the moment - the construction of the new school toilet and shower block. The photos show the early stages of the building work.
Other things will need to be done. We need to talk seriously to our Bank Manager in The Gambia. Transferring money is always a concern - best exchange rates/bank charges etc. Andy will also be making a special effort to visit the homes of as many sponsored children as possible - something that has not been achieved so far. A trip to Senegal is a possibility.
An open invitation is always open to interested parties to join Andy on the trips to The Gambia. On this trip Andy will be accompanied by the well known Northamptonshire Historian and Raconteur - Mr Michael York.
