Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link

Meeting Peter Penfold

Peter Penfold, one of the Link’s three patrons, was passing through Hastings the other day, and we were able to meet up with him in Richard’s & Christine’s garden for a chat over coffee and lemon drizzle cake. In a couple of hours, we talked about quite a range of subjects of concern to ourselves and to Peter, and he was able to make some really helpful suggestions on the basis of his many years of experience of working in Sierra Leone. Peter goes to Sierra Leone several times a year, and calls in on Hastings when he can. (At the moment, a big project for him is a rice farm he has set up, up-country. It’s hard to imagine now, but SL was once an exporter of rice…)
