MISSION GUATEMALA
March 2017

Wishing dental nurse Rachel Emerson and her husband Roy the best of luck when they will shortly join the chairty 'Mission Guatemala' for 5 weeks. We look forward to welcoming her back to the practice in April. 

In January 2005 the Humphries family left England for Guatemala. They work in an indigenous (native) town which is extremely poor and gang violence and corruption make people's lives very hard. They set up a school which now teaches 170 children, with a few now starting University, something they would never have been able to do otherwise.

They also run a church, a family and learning sponsorship programme and work with the women of the town, many of whom cannot read or write.

The Beavers visit Ghyllmount
February 2017

We were delighted to welcome the Lowther Beavers to Ghyllmount on Tuesday night to help them work towards their 'Health and Fitness Activity Badge'.

They all behaved beautifully and hopefully learned lots of things about tooth brushing and the quantities of sugar hidden in our everyday food.
