There will be a Coffee Morning at Hopeman Memorial Hall on Saturday 16th September from 10 to 12.00.    The background to the Coffeee Morning is interesting.   Busega Scotland is working with Busega District Council and the Rotary Clubs of Elgin and Mwanza to establish a piped water supply for Mayega Children’s Centre. A pipe from the centre will then carry water to a Sanitation Block in Mayega village – this would be the first time in 40 years that the villagers will have the benefit of running water. Can you believe it?

A family, Leigh Anne Hepburn, and her children are hosting the Coffee Morning to raise funds for the Sanitation Block. It will be built with the villagers, as a cost-effective prototype, with a view to replicating it elsewhere in the area. The other good news is that the District Water Engineer in Busega has informed us that he is finalising a contract to bring a pipe to the village and, all being well, water should be flowing next month. How fantastic that would be.

Please support the Hepburn family’s efforts by relaxing in Hopeman on Saturday!
