Thanks once again to Bob Durston for this latest newsletter from the charity WaterHarvest (formerly known as Wells for India). It includes the Spring 2018 edition of the WaterHarvest magazine, which may be downloaded. This is a most informative magazine which includes "Where we work and what we do" in the form of a map, a description of the Chauka system and how it works, and even a recipe for 'Paneer in Spicy Tomato Sauce'.
We have Helen Stewart to thank for this recipe. As it happens, I was fortunate enough to try a slice of the courgette cake Helen had made for the Women's World Day of Prayer, and - trust me - it is very good! (It's all part of an editor's work...)
The first of the monthly Shared Lunches took place yesterday in the Jefferies Hall. Around 30 people attended, contributing a marvellous spread of savoury and sweet dishes, which were clearly appreciated by all. Fr. Alan had observed that shared lunches can be a real feast, and he was right!
