Six of the best, good news and Monday event

There was a bumper crop of birthdays to celebrate this week.And as usual each birthday child was congratulated and greeted when the family gathered for Kidz Club.
With Auntie Rose back from maternity leave after giving birth to baby Joanne, she had the honour of presenting gifts to five of the birthday kids - Lesley, Salama, Jedida, Francis and Jeremiah.
Uncle Billy made one of the presentations, to Francis' younger sister, Mwende,
All the children were delighted with their gifts,
Happy birthday kids.

Good news for our coast

There has been Good news for the coast this week as the British Foreign Office has lifted its advice against all but essential travel to Malindi. 
Hopefully this will make it easier for travellers wanting to fly Nairobi-Malindi en route to Watamu, instead of having to travel via Mombasa.
We look forward to lots more visitors to Watamu as a result and to seeing more of the community back in work.
And, of course, we hope for many more visitors to our Happy House too.

Monday gathering

Nurse Jo Reid is hosting a Happy House evening at Spire Fylde Hospital, St Walburgas Road, Blackpool, on Monday evening from 6pm.
There will be prosecco and nibbles, plus a raffle with some lovely prizes. 
Elizabeth Gomm will be there to show a video and talk about how our founder Sue Hayward and her husband, Dave, have become Mama and Papa to a huge and happy family.
All money raised will be to buy groceries and supplies for our family which Jo and her husband Pete will buy on a local shopping trip while they are in Watamu in November.
Tickets for Monday evening, Nov 2, are £5 each from Jo
