Quoted: “I am Shamash-resh-ușur, the governor of Suhu and the land of Mari. Bees that collect honey, which none of my ancestors had ever seen or brought into the land of Suhu, I brought down from the mountain of the men of Habha, and made them settle in the orchards of the town 'Gabbari-built-it'. They collect honey and wax, and I know how to melt the honey and wax - and the gardeners know too. Whoever comes in the future, may he ask the old men of the town, (who will say) thus: "They are the buildings of Shamash-resh-ușur, the governor of Suhu, who introduced honey bees into the land of Suhu."

RUGBY COACH ASSISTANT
Sponsors, donors and helpers or experienced rugby players advice is always a respected input. Training is every day and matches take place on a Saturday. Transport is always needed for away games, balls and uniforms are recycled to kids or schools and new equipment is appreciated.

SOUP KITCHEN CO-ORDINATOR
The soup kitchen is run out of the rugby club which was built on donations organized by Forest Hall Estate management and generous Dutch donors in the past, however upkeep and maintenance is never ending.

BUILDERS AND CARPENTERS
Elderly township residents are always needing help with home maintenance and this student to local person relationship is fostered through various interactions in the village of Kurland.
