The Butlers made a flying visit to The Gambia in early April 2016. The intention was to have a few days holiday combined with a day or two in Penyem. This was achieved but also some developments were made in the village. There will be a formal announcement in due course when the detailed plans have been completed. At this stage all we can say is that some significant changes will be made to the way the village day care and nursery school is funded.
We were able to see the repairs to the skills centre roof that has been funded by Corby Phoenix Rotary Club. The damage to the roof was seen in our December visit and thanks to the funding supplied Rotary Club it was repaired in time for the rooms to be used for examinations.
Pa Sainey Nyassi.
Pa is a native of Penyem. He runs a successful Juice Bar business on the beach near Senegambia. For many years he has been a popular friend to all NTF visitors. He has never asked for anything in return. It is with great pleasure that NTF wishes to announce that Pa has been added to our team of co-workers. Initially his position is voluntary but will carry some benefits. We welcome Pa in the official role of NTF Communications Officer (The Gambia).
