News from Meru

 

From the 2017 Autumn Church Magazine

 

Since the spring magazine update there has been good progress at both St Stephen’s kindergarten and Limbene Primary School. The Rev Elijah reports that almost a hundred children attend the kindergarten, with Class Five being taught in the church vestry until a second level can be completed on the school building. The local congregation continue fund-raising to furnish the classrooms and heartily appreciate the money we send. Already our combined efforts have resulted in a substantial kitchen which provides food for the pupils.


At Limbene a local pastor and guidance teacher, Silas, with the aptly named Mercy, another staff member, have joined forces with the head­master. Together they have put the Broughty Ferry contributions to good use, as you can see from the photo of the newly installed hand washing area to complement the toilet facilities. I hope to visit these projects next February with a friend of almost fifty years, Margaret Duffy, who is Chair of Fairtrade in Cupar. As a boost to fund-raising

I’m having another Meru Lunch at home, 47 Camphill Road, from 11.30 till 2.30 pm on Friday October 20. Cost will be £5 for a selection of home-made soups and sandwiches. I would be delighted to welcome you to this, and have certainly appreciated your support for this worthwhile cause in the past.

Contributions for a raffle would also be gratefully received. To help with the catering please let me know if you wish to attend the lunch. Please be assured of my ongoing thanks for your generous support over the past nine years via our Meru stall and weekly collection plate. Sincerely appreciated.
