Subject: BYO/BYO Reunion London May 29 2010

Dear Ex- and Present Bulawayans,

Save this Date for Next Year Saturday 29th MAY, 2010

SATURDAY
On that Saturday a lunchtime and afternoon reunion is planned at the great Hammersmith, Thames-riverside Pub of ex-Bulawayans Louis and Pat (Cooper) Amato:
The Blue Anchor Pub 13, Lower Mall London W6 9DJ Email: louis.mitre@btinternet.com Tel: 0208 748 5574
Tube: Ravenscourt Park (0.4 miles), Hammersmith (0.4 miles), or Stamford Brook (0.8 miles)
All Bulawayans and ex-Bulawayans, and their spouses, are invited.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON to BYO and ex-BYO people you know. (Because of this chain-like distribution, please understand if you get more than one notice)
There will be a 10.00 charge to cover an all day buffet -- and drinks will be on sale.
Please let Lou Amato (email above) know before May 24th if you are coming -- and tell him how many are in your party
And please bring any mementos -- or, better, copies of them -- for display. (If originals are used, please put your name and contact points on them for added security and convenience)
We will begin assembling at the Blue Anchor at 12.30pm and will stay as long as we like until closing time.

SUNDAY

The next day Sunday May 30th, we will have another BYO/BYO (bring your own, Bulawayo) meeting -- a picnic in Regents Park, meeting at the Bandstand, off the Inner Circle, near Regents College and the boating lake(Clarence Gate is the nearest entrance).
If you need, there is the Cafe nearby for food and drink.
As there is a restriction to no more than 40 people for group picnics in the Parks, we suggest that several spontaneous groups form (according to your affiliations in Byo) and separate a bit (say 100 yards) from each other.
We will meet at 12.30 pm onwards.
More reminders and updates will be sent out as necessary.

Anybody who lives in the Hillside area will know that the wood smoke in this suburb has become a horrendous problem every evening, regardless of power cuts or not. The acidic, smothering haze starts at 5pm and carries on until daybreak. Please may I suggest that residents work together to help 'clean up our air'. Speak to your neighbors, domestic workers and security guards about leaving fires smoldering overnight. Please burn rubbish during the daytime to allow time for the smoke to dissipate. Any other suggestions most welcome. Together, we can make a difference!

Yet another reminder of God's Grace!
Bob Brown of Colbro Transport with the collaboration of CoalZim Marketing arranged for a donation of 180 tons of coal to Ingutsheni on saturday last. The patients hadn't all had a hot meal in more than a week due to there being no coal and no ZESA to cook food with. When there's no coal, there's no hot water nor cooked food! This wonderful donation will last them 6 months or more!
Bob, for those in Ingutsheni who cannot speak for themselves....THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! Phil 1:27

7) BULAWAYO NEWS

IRISH VISA APPLICATION
First you must have a friend on Broadband as this appears to be the only place to find out anything www.embassyofireland.org.za
Then you will discover that you must apply on the Internet (again you'll need the long suffering friend with Broadband). Be ready with the following informatibecauseon:

Type of visa you want (visit, study, work) and how long. All your current and previous passport details.
Name and all contact details (put your email because even though you can never email them, they may eventually email you with a query).
How long you have lived in Zim.
Have you ever been to Ireland before (if Yes be ready with all that information including reference numbers) Who are you visiting in Ireland with all their contact details. Who you work for with all their contact details. Your spouse's details, date/length of marriage, passport details (I came unstuck here because nowhere did it ask which passport he had and they assumed that it was EU then got suspicious of me "if you have an Irish husband how come you've never been to Ireland before". My Anglo Saxon husband was not amused. Details of your dependents

Having given them all that online, you must now send all that supporting documentation to the Embassy in Pretoria. At this point and quite by chance, I discovered that there is an Honorary Irish Consul in Harare who actually answers the phone and talks to you (unlike the Embassy in Pretoria who only give you information on the phone but do not answer questions). I was able to send all the documents to Harare with the US$80 fee.

Two problems here were that they wanted my passport and they wanted to take 6 - 8 weeks to process the visa, and they mean this. I managed to negotiate that I sent a certified copy of relevant pages of my passport (not wanting to be without it for that length of time) and that should the visa not come before my flight, I could collect it at the Embassy in London. This was helpful as I would never have left Zimbabwe. On arrival in London I was emailed that my visa was approved so was able to visit the Irish Embassy in London to collect it. Note that collections are only done in the afternoon and that they will fill up 2 pages of your passport with visas and various stamps.

Contact details for Harare: Lamont House, 2 Robert Mugabe Rd, Harare Tel: 04 - 771 949 Fax: 04 - 750 780 Email: irishconsulate@africaonline.co.zw

I have a sophisticated embroidery machine and designs to suit anybody and every occasion. Would you like to 'personalise' something for a special gift? Turn facecloth or towels into the category of special, or 'tie up' your new (or old!) decor with new cushions or bed linen? A gift of napery for weddings. New life to your existing wardrobe, or the garment you've had made, to become out of the ordinary? Safari lodges looking for something different and original for their clients?

I also have a knitting machine (yes I know Summer's here) but perhaps a gift of a garment, or just to add to your wardrobe for your next trip overseas?

Umtali High Centenary Celebration Reunions

Anyone with an affiliation with Umtali/Mutare is invited to attend the Centenary Reunion events to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Umtali High School.

Although the first school opened in Old Umtali in 1895 with 12 students, 1909 is recognised as the start of Umtali High. It was this year that the two church run high schools amalgamated to form the Umtali High School as a government institution.

The planned Umtali High Centenary Celebration Reunions are as follows:
Brisbane, Australia Saturday 12 September 2009 - contact Ray Thorne mr.cheese@bigpond.com London, England Saturday 12 September 2009 - contact Adrienne Chapman dawntaylor957@btinternet.com Cape Town, South Africa 6pm Friday 2 October 2009 - Contact Cynthia McLachlan cdm@worldonline.co.za Auckland, New Zealand Saturday 3 October 2009 - Contact Malcolm & Alice Davidson jasdrama@xtra.co.nz Pretoria, South Africa Saturday 10 October 2009 - contact George & Vanessa Galanakis vanessa@galaway.co.za South Eastern USA Venue and date to be announced - Contact Will Fleshman wfleshman@cfl.rr.com Durban, South Africa Sunday 1 November 2009 - Contact Roy Hendry hendryba@telkomsa.net Port Elizabeth, South Africa Venue and date to be announced - Contact Trevor Walton trevorwalton44@hotmail.com Harare, Zimbabwe Saturday 19 December 2009 - Contact Briv Baxter brivbax@hotmail.com
Please distribute this invitation to anyone you know who may be interested. The Celebration Reunions are not limited to UBHS and UGHS ex-pupils but open to anyone who has a connection with Umtali/Mutare. If you wish to organise a Reunion in your neck of the woods please contact Ray Thorne at mr.cheese@bigpond.com so the event details can be publicised via the Old Borderer website and Umtali Facebook Groups.

I wonder if you could give me some assistance please. I have a school group on Facebook and now a website. It's our schools 50th birthday this year.

I have been in negotiations with the Minister of Education of Zimbabwe, Senator David Coltart and he has approved us as fundraisers to revamp the school and uplift the students. Extensive research and preparations have been made to put this program into operation. The education system in Zimbabwe is in dire straights and needs all the help it can get. Without Education our country will never come to rights. Part of the program is that we are challenging all former students of Zimbabwe schools to follow our lead. Anyone is welcome to contact me as to the program details and share ideas.

They need to contact me on LordMalvernHigh@gmail.com

All former students please visit the website.

17) HEALTH AND BEAUTY

The Reconnection & Re connective Healing is now available in Zimbabwe
The Reconnection is about restoring yourself to spiritual wholeness. It is about releasing or removing the blocks or interferences that have kept you separate from your intrinsic perfection. The Reconnection takes place in two sessions, each session lasting about 45 minutes. Sessions optimally take place on consecutive day. The Reconnection is a touch-free procedure. Clients lie on a massage table, fully clothed. Cost for the two-session Reconnection is R1800.

Re-connective Healing allows for healings that are not just physical, mental or emotional but which go beyond that to bring you healing that includes the evolution of your very being and essence. A Re-connective Healing session usually lasts 30-45 minutes. Clients lie on a massage table, fully clothed. Re-connective Healing is a touch-free procedure. It is recommended that you experience a series of three sessions to adjust to the new healing frequencies. Cost for a Reconnective Healing session is $450.

Is your son or daughter having difficulty with O or A Level Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry?

Do the A Level classes contain 30 students rather than 10? Classes this size do not allow for much individual help.

If so, I can coach your son or daughter in the above subjects, having had 35 years experience teaching these subjects. I take only one student at a time, which ensures that the student has individual attention and help.

Are you having problems with expensive inflexible payrolls? If so, I can develop an extremely reasonably priced tailor made payroll system for your business, mine, farm or institution. I also offer computer courses in MS Windows operating system, MS Word word processing, MS Excel spreadsheet, MS Access database, MS Project Project Design, desk top publishing, AutoCAD computer aided design, MS Outlook Express e-mail, Internet browsing and search, Corel Draw, Corel PhotoPaint graphic design and digital photography.

- Cargill Cotton Bearer Cheques
In 2003 & 2004 Cargill Cotton (Harare) issued their own bearer cheques to cotton farmers in rural areas in Mashonaland (maybe Matabeleland?). Standard Chartered returned all redeemed cheques to Cargill Cotton. Cargill Cotton destroyed the returned cheques. However, 15% of the supply were not redeemed and remain with rural cotton growers. Looking for any of these issues and denominations desperately.

- Current Bearer Cheques (2006 - 2008): $10 000 - first issue with AA prefix on serial numbers. The bearer cheque does not have a space between the 10 and the 000s so it looks like "10000" $100 000 - first issue with AA prefix on serial numbers. The bearer cheque does not have a space between the 100 and the 000s so it looks like "100000"

- the First Bearer Cheques that came out (2003 - 2006): $5 000 - Issue Date: 15 Sept 2003. Redemption Date: 31 JANUARY 2004 Signed: Acting Governor *

$10 000 - Issue Date: 15 Sept 2003 Expiry Date: 31 JANUARY 2004 Signed: Acting Governor * $10 000 - Issue Date: 15 Sept 2003 Expiry Date: 30 June 2004 Signed: Acting Governor $20 000 - Issue Date: 13 Sept 2003 Expiry Date: 31 JANUARY 2004 Signed: Acting Governor * $20 000 - Issue Date: 15 Sept 2003 Expiry Date: 30 June 2004 Signed: Acting Governor $50 000 - Issue Date: Issue Date: 1 Oct 2005. Expiry Date: 31 December 2006 $100 000 - Issue Date: 1 Oct 2005. Expiry Date: 31 December 2006 - The old Zimbabwean bank notes (1980 - 1994): $10 - Issue: 1982 Harare $10 - Issue: 1982 Salisbury $20 - Issue: 1982 Harare
- Older Rhodesian Notes
Any notes from BEFORE the dollar system - Rhodesia notes/ Rhodesia & Nyasaland / Southern Rhodesia / Commercial Bank Notes e.g. Standard Bank & Barclays. I'm not interested in Rhodesian dollar notes at the moment.
- Other
ANY specimen issues. I collect any specimens I can find. Other bearer cheques, travelers cheques, bank notes or paper items from Zimbabwe/Rhodesia that are unique and interesting. Solid serial numbers e.g. 777777 / radar serial numbers e.g. 1234321 or 000010000 / low serial numbers 0000002
If you can help me with any of these please send me an email at mikefinchday@gmail.com. Please don't email me unless you are serious about selling the notes. You must have a European bank account or Paypal. The dates and details of what I'm looking for are important so please check they match. I am not interested in coins/stamps etc.

19) TIDBITS


For most the situation has improved but for the elderly it has not! We are in desperate need of funding to carry on assisting our pensioners. Now our costs are in real money the task has become greater. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, PLEASE help us to help them. We have had to stop all glasses and dentistry and concentrate on the essential services and life saving medicines only.

CLINICS: We run 3 clinics a week, Coronation Cottages Blood Pressure Mon am, full clinic pm, Rhodes Jubilee Thurs pm and Garden Park Fri am, as well as a clinic at King Haven Esigodini once every 6 weeks. Thank you to our Doctors Leg and Condon and Srn Page and Heekes. Cards have been issued to pensioners registered and assessed to ensure only the needy are assisted. We have 1028 registered on the database of which 406 are assisted with clinics, medicines, etc. Total running costs: US$2000 per month

MEDICINES: Our medicines are costing approximately US$ 7500 per month, which come from Pretoria, thank you to Castle Ridge for sourcing and packing the medicines for us. We do receive some donated medicines from Tzaneen, as well as vitamins & minerals, cough meds etc. Thank you to Edmund De Beer and his wonderful team. These medicines have become critical as the pensioners are struggling to survive on what little they have and medicines, doctor's, health basically is bottom of the survival list!

SCS/MRLHF have been asked to assist with helping the homes in the smaller town, i.e. Kwekwe, Kadoma, Masvingo, Shurugwi and Mutare. The pensioners in these areas don't have access to pharmacies or even doctors. This will add an extra 174 to our medicines list, bringing the total to 580 pensioners per month. The funding is there for the extra medicines but we need assistance for the dispensing fees from the pharmacies. US$1.5 per person total cost US$870 per month. EMRAS: The ambulance cost is US$30 per patient. Over the last quarter we have had 14 patients. Total cost: US$ 420 GLASSES: 8 patients Total cost: US$480.
DENTIST: We had a visit from a SA dentist who gave his services for free. Patients that needed extractions or fillings, he was able to assist. Thank you to this wonderful man. Our dentist costs were reduced thanks to the visit. Total cost: US$ 270. OFFICE B7: This offers an essential service to our pensioners to assist with any medical needs they may have or sometimes just a sympathetic ear and support for them in these hard times. The Staff: Janine, Beryl, Isobel, Arlene and Ursula are always there to assist in any situation as well as visit those who are not well or feeling down due to their circumstances. For the Pensioners, this has been invaluable and I would like to thank the SCS/MRLHF team for their dedication and support to our elderly, they really are Earth Angels! The administration behind running an organization such as this, especially with the rotation of medicines and clinics every month is huge. Our running costs for the office: US$ 2500 per month.
For us to continue offering this essential service to our pensioners we are looking at US$ 13050 per month, this does not include dentist or optometrist. Please help us to continue by donating to any one of the following accounts at the end of the letter, which ever is more convenient for you and please pass this newsletter on to everyone you know. THANK YOU!
FOOD FOR HOMES BULAWAYO
The food situation has improved, as product is more readily available in Zimbabwe, but unfortunately at a price! We are still supplying food to the homes as best we can and we have been able to supply fresh meat, bacon and cheese as well as the dry goods. Thank you to all the butcheries that have assisted with mince and stew.
The homes are charging more realistic fees, which have helped their cash flow, but for some of the residents it is beyond their means. The walk in freezer has been a god send, not only do we store meat but our dry goods as well such as oats, pronutro, rice etc which has stopped the infestation of weevils!
Thank you to all our donors who have made it possible for us to improve the lives of our pensioners!
