In July we had a fascinating trip to Ghana presented by Anne Taylor. We not only learnt interesting facts but also had colourful displays of Ghanaian textiles. Ghana, formerly the Gold Coast, was the first country in Africa to gain independence from colonial rule. It is now, to a large extent, the most stable and well-governed country in Africa. The former head of the U.N., Kofi Annan, is from Ghana. It has a wealth of resources with oil and gas reserves and is the world's largest producer of cocoa. It is a colourful, friendly and happy country.

There will be no meeting in August but we will meet again in September.
