    took books etc to a Pre School in Pottuvil today – the kids were great and the teachers very enthusiastic. Well worth all the graft!

    Former Abay Surf Club Chairman Dies – 49 year old Former Arugam Bay Surf Club Chairman, Ranjan, died of a massive heart attack whilst surfing at Baby Point, Arugam Bay, on the East Coast of Sri Lanka. Attempts of CPR by both local people and western tourists alike, to revive him, proved fruitless as numerous locals stood helpless around him. Ranjan leaves behind a wife and three sons. Alan, the eldest, is a regular surfer, who uses UK surfboards donated by Paddle4Relief. He has been a force within the charity by using his skills to repair our computer. Ranjan’s death again shows the need for both Beach Life Guard and a Medical Centre in the village. With the Civil War over, internal travel within Sri Lanka, particularly the East and North is more relaxed, so seeing increasing numbers of both Western and Sri Lankan Tourists crowding the beach and sea. It is now more apparent that there is a desperate need of qualified life savers. Regularly local surfers are rescuing individuals from the unpredictable tropical coastline. The young surfers of the village are demanding action to prevent further loss of life. They are willing to undergo training and man the local surf breaks in an attempt to save life and prevent injury. These young men are turning to the International Humanitarian, Medical, Surfing, Surf Life Saving and Water Sports Communities to assist them in their quest! Out of respect to Ranjan the community of Arugam Bay are focused on achieving this quest and hope that all that read this article can be generous in offering either practical or financial help. Please either contact Fawas, present Chairman of ArugamBay Surf Club – or Tim Tanton, Paddle4Relief –

    Water, water, water!

    Water, water, water! – The drought continues on the east coast of Sri Lanka. The rains were due weeks ago, not heavy as the later monsoon rains, but enough to allow the farmers to start work on their paddi fields. Alas the ground is bone dry, rock hard and useless to work with. All the rivers, lagoons and tanks are dry. Wildlife continues to die. Many Elephants and Deer have already perished. Elephants now becoming more dangerous than ever as they search desperately for fresh water. Some areas are using water bowsers to transport water to watering holes so as to prevent all of the areas wildlife from dieing! Yet it is not only mother nature who has caused this drought. Huge pumps have drained massive amounts of water from the rivers. Pumps that feed water to a water filtration plant. Don’t get me wrong, the unit is extremely beneficial to many. It is invaluable but at a cost it seems. It is probably unfortunate that the two have coincided and hence why so many locals are critical of the huge pumps and feel powerless to do anything. They feel that they could have achieved something towards working on their lands and trying to grow some crops! Although there is no proof of this. It is painful to see everything dieing around us. So dry and dusty. Surfers are happy because the swells continue to come with the lack of rain, whereas the fishermen are crying out for the rains to come as well, hoping for better fishing! Egrets are coming into the garden looking for food. Normally in the Paddy fields, in huge numbers, eating frogs and small fish etc. The lagoons dry, the fish dead! I don’t know where the crocodiles are!

    Bike Mechanic

    Bike Mechanic – Bohoma Stuthi (Thank you very much) to Chris Martin for repairing Paddle4Reliefs two mountain bikes during his stay in Arugam Bay. Chris came out here for a much needed holiday but made himself invaluable to the P4R team by his tenacity in getting the bikes functional. Guess he managed to improve his tan at the same time though!! Chris also caught many kilos of small fish for the family even though he is unable to eat fish due to his allergy!! Shame! All the more for the rest of us though! They are soo good fried! Thanks for coming out Chris. It was a real pleasure to have you come visit. Hopefully more will follow from the UK now it is so safe to travel to the East Coast.

    Rat Attack!

    Rat Attack! – Most people would not expect to see a rat attempting to jump and climb out of the toilet as they are busy going about their business! But not once but twice this happened this morning. A nasty shock for sure and a difficult situation to deal with. For what does one do first? Finish what one has started or stop mid flow and kill the rat before returning to ones business! Yes, funny for sure but not so funny if the little long snouted black rat had managed to clamp it’s sharp set of teeth into my soft delicate English skin!
