Sadly, SEP UK, the GCI Christian Youth Activity Summer Camp (see sepuk.org) had to be cancelled for this summer 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, but happily, plans are in place for SEP 2021.

In the meantime, this summer, Watford held a small Youth Activity on Sunday 26th July. The youth gathered at the home of Irene Wilson for lunch together before games including rounders, and then went to the home of Richard Fowler for a film. There was a tremendous atmosphere among the youth and many are looking forward to SEP 2021. Here is a picture of the group, socially distanced in Irene’s garden:

Catherine Wilson is making coronavirus masks to sell to raise funds for a school trip in 2021. She writes:
“A group of about 40 of us from Parmiter’s School (age 17-18) will be travelling to Tanzania next July for a three week expedition. In addition to seeing some of the country we will be working with a charity called Better Lives who we will be assisting with rural community sustainability and education projects. The exact details are yet to be confirmed but we may well be helping with some education/literacy projects or sustainable development service activities in a rural part of the country. We are also hoping to go to Dar es Salaam and then Zanzibar to complete the trip.
At the moment I am busy fundraising for my expedition costs and also to raise money for the project we will be doing with the charity. I am really excited about going to Tanzania and helping with the community work; I will also probably be spending my 18th birthday there which is exciting.”
The masks are three layers of cotton as per the government recommendations. If you are interested in buying any masks, please contact Irene Wilson or contact Catherine directly. They are £5 each or 3 for £10, and come in a range of colours and designs.
