LAST BUT NOT LEAST ~ REUNION 2023 - CLICK FOR GALLERY PICTURES



APRIL 2024:
April in UK ~ it's not just the seasonal showers but the time of year when things begin to sprout - to quote "they bring the flowers that bloom in May". So, despite much more rain this year than usual let's be optimistic for some good UK Spring weather with the right amount of sunshine and showers and may the Cherry blossom lead the way.


You will recall that last month I indicated that due to illness, I was no longer making the quarterly telephone calls to those members who used to receive them. This hasn't changed but, needless to say, I miss these calls and to maintain contact I would very much appreciate that, if possible, those members could maintain a brief quarterly e-mail contact to keep me updated with their news. Of course due notification will be given if this situation changes.
This month, from Volume 2 of Colin Baker's books, Chris Bean writes about Fred Balestra - a noted character resident in the Fort Lister gap in Mlanje district ~ Click here to read to read it.
Chit-Chat Re-visited (2017) ~ Who remembers Arthur Dent?
No, not that one in the comic science fiction series 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' by Douglas Adams but Arthur Dent of Zomba Plateau and the Lakeshore. He was one of the oldsters, an eccentric bachelor and indeed a character with quite a history behind him. I'm sure quite a few of us ran across him but he was well known to Reg and Mary Brill at the Lakeshore and Brian and Jayne Burgess on Zomba Plateau. Rodney Walshaw, a Govt geologist, met him in 1961 and compiled the attached "The life and times of Arthur Cyril Dent 1893-1983".

FRIENDS OF MALAWI ASSOCIATION

With the end of our annual reunions and the much enjoyed personal contacts made, is it possible that FOMA offers a possible alternative? This Association was formed in 1969 to foster friendship, goodwill and understanding between the people of UK and the people of Malawi. A number of our members have joined and membership is recommended. Events this year include the Spring Meeting, which is a virtual Google (Zoom) Meet, at 2pm on Saturday 14th April and the Annual Re-union in Burley in the New Forest on Sunday May 19th. For further details visit the
FOMA website - forthcoming events or contact the secretary at secretary@foma.org.uk
