Newsletter editor – Nigel sends news from his volunteer placement in The Gambia
Friday 19th August
This morning I cut some corrugated iron to fit the top of the blocks and then we placed the chicken coop on the blocks and placed the corrugated iron between the blocks and the coop, the corrugated iron is there to stop pests climbing into the coop and if the blocks are painted with lime, which we don`t have at the moment, that should deter the termites.
The corrugated iron here is about a third of the thickness of that we have in England and when cutting it I had to be very careful as the cut edges were like a razor.
So when I finished it was goodbye to Musa, Buba and Kaddy and the journey back to Sandele for the last time, I transfer to Safari Gardens in Fajara tomorrow and will meet Kelly the GIG manager for a catch up meeting and then I catch the flight back to England at 3.10am on Sunday , Air Maroc allowing of course!
