A successful Devon Lunch

24 EAWL members and friends of East Africa gathered at “Salama”, the Tiverton, Devon, home of Gordon & Anne Davies, in warm & sunny “Kenya weather” on the last Saturday in June – the 10th annual meeting held at this venue. We especially welcomed our President, Annie Appleyard, Ann Narraway (Hon. Secretary Benevolent Committee), Morag Owen-Burke (Leader of Dorset/Somerset Group), and our own Branch Chairman, Christine Marsh. Whilst some of our faithful long-standing members were, happily, still with us, we were also pleased to greet a good number of younger and more recent friends. Happy memories were revived, old friendships renewed, aided by considerable quantities of good Kenya curry, fruit salad and Kenya coffee!

AGM 2019

Our AGM was held on 12th March 2019 in the Alamein Room at the Victory Services Club at Marble Arch. It was attended by 63 members and their guests, who enjoyed an excellent curry lunch.

Edward Paice, an EAWL member and Director of the Africa Research Institute, gave a very interesting talk entitled Musing on East Africa through 10 Objects. His objects led us through his memories of life and authorship over the last 20 years.

Members and their guests had plenty of opportunity to catch up with friends old and new, as can be seen in the gallery of photographs below.
