Dear Nyasalander
Most of our members have been advised that with the continuing Coronavirus pandemic our Reunion 2020, due to be held on 9th July, is cancelled. Thank you for your support in this very unfortunate matter.

Moni, moniri nonse ~ August 2020
With the relaxation of some Covid restrictions, it has been encouraging to see a resumption of certain restricted activities in the UK. Worldwide the pandemic remains very evident in its effects and the number of infections occurring. We remember all whose lives and livelihoods have been so drastically affected in so many ways. However, if you are able to have a holiday or break away this month, take it, and I hope you will have a most enjoyable and restful time.
Colin Bakers six volume set of books on 'Expatriate Experience of Life and Work in Nyasaland' was published between 2012 and 2017. Contributions from several members were included and we have the kind permission of Mpemba Books, owners of the copyright, to reproduce them subject to due acknowledgement. We hope to do this from time to time, starting this month with Founder Member Christopher Bean's item 'The Nyasaland Police: My First Six Months'.

Keeping in touch
How often did you write home? With a three years tour being standard, however did we manage with communications normally being confined to writing air letters? For several of us, e-mail, free or reduced rate overseas calls, Skype or Zoom, etc, are the norm nowadays. What changes!
Vanessa - Our Girl in the Faroes
We send our very best wishes to Vanessa Farmery, a stalwart supporter of the Association, on her relocation to the Faroes. The Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago, some 400 miles north of Edinburgh and part of the Kingdom of Denmark. It comprises 18 rocky, volcanic islands between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean, connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges. Hikers and bird-watchers are drawn to the islandsí mountains, valleys and grassy heathland, and on the steep coastal cliffs nest thousands of seabirds. (Photo: Vanessa Farmery)

Musical Interlude
Taking the cue from para 1 above - it was after about four months or so of covid lockdown here in the UK before some conditions were eased to allow non-essential shops to open, with some sport and entertainment as well as foreign holidays permitted. So, why not revert to the UK summer ritual of a fortnight away in the sunny Med and click here - but given the latest covid information maybe best not to let Sylvia tempt you back to the Costa Brava.
