A day of the plumbers

The remote valley school and church where Allan, Grant and Tim have been travelling to each day is the culmination of a partnership starting a year ago.

The toilet project involved the village people raising money and starting the toilet building. Then the Golden Oldies and NZCMS Families groups contributed funds. Now ‘the boys’ as part of this year’s ‘Golden Oldies’ team are using their plumbing and joinery skills to teach and work alongside the local men to install the toilets.

And true partnership it has been.
Our boys teaching skills as they install the doors, pipes, toilets basins; and the Fijians show them how to ‘rest’ with Fiji time, especially after lunch with a compulsory rest!

Its a race to finish the installation before the entire village turn up on Sunday for the grand opening, and subsequent Fijian festivities to follow, with the Golden Oldies as VIP guests!
“its the rain that is hindering us at present” Allan says, but God-willing we will get to the finish line before Sunday!
Bring on Sunday.
[postscript: the day has dawned fine and warm and the boys are off with a vengeance to complete their mission!]
