Visitors From Timbuktu

A party of midwives and teachers from Timbuktu were supposed to be arriving in Hay this weekend, but because of delays with their visas they will now be coming next week instead. So the party at the Buttermarket yesterday had to be cancelled, and next week will take place at the Castle instead.
There was going to be a communal pottery firing party on the community gardens this weekend as well, but sadly funding for part of it was not forthcoming in the end, and that, too, has had to be cancelled.
However, shop windows around town are decorated with Malian flags and things African in preparation for the visit.
