It's that time of the phase again...

It's that time of the phase on expedition again, when a team from Field Base called the "Loop" set off to visit our static sites (the community and environment projects) to bring cheer, re-supplies, sweets, blog messages and post from loved ones back home.

The Loop, consisting of our lovely accounts manager Helen, logistician Rhys and deputy programme manager Rob will be heading off to Alphas 3, 4, 1 and 2  starting this Sunday.

So post a message on the blog before Sunday and we'll make sure your messages will get through. Messages posted from deployment onwards will be brought on the Loop.

Phase 1 begins

Before heading off to their projects, our teams first had to ensure they had all the necessary supplies, from food and drink to tools and equipment.  With teams of at least 15, three weeks' worth of rations certainly mounts up.  Let's hope we booked big enough buses!

Before dawn yesterday, the groups were up and about, loading food and equipment onto the buses that would take them far and wide across Sabah.

All supplies present and correct (or so we hope!), the teams boarded their buses and we bade them farewell.

Bye for now! We'll be back in a few days to see how everyone's getting on.
