2018 Visit

There had certainly been a lot of damage caused by heavy rain in certain areas in the early months of this year. Access roads were sometimes ‘inaccessible’ but the rain brought some good results for DAK’s Schools’ Rain Water Harvesting projects. Extra storage tanks would be an added benefit. Visits to some of the older […]

Foroforo Pipeline Extension

A pipeline was installed at Foroforo in 2005/6 which also supplied a neighbouring hamlet. As time elapsed and a greater number of users came to fill their buckets at the taps, the polyurethane storage tank proved to be of an insufficient size. In March 2013, following village meetings and agreements made by them, DAK and […]

Princetown Primary School Harvest Celebration

Parents and friends were invited  to join the forty three pupils from the village Primary School to celebrate the annual harvest at the Methodist Church. The choice of music,  song and drama was wonderfully suited to DAK’s purpose and to the children’s admirable performances which they were obviously enjoying. ” I think you should know […]

Ruby Run Walkers

On Sunday 14th June three local ladies entered the annual thirteen and a half miles Ruby Run between the market towns of Hatherleigh and Holsworthy in West Devon. In sunny conditions with a gentle breeze they joined those who chose to walk rather than run, getting to the finishing line in three and a half […]
