Became involved in the Federation of African Women’s Clubs (FAWC) and Homecraft Movement</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>‘‘I am also enjoying to teach my African women to cook... We did the dear old biscuit recipe last time and they all enjoyed tasting them afterwards! Oliver, the African Postmaster’s wife attends. On Wednesday morning I asked Oliver in the post office whether his wife had made biscuits for supper? He said “yes” rather ruefully and apparently she had not got the oven hot enough and they were rather tough!! I couldn’t help but be amused. It’s almost pathetic in a way, this yearning to live like we do! I don’t think it’s very practical but I hope their coming and my liking to be with them teaching them each week is a small contribution towards our understanding of one another. They have learnt how to make marmalade and are very pleased with themselves’.
