Dear Readers and Advertisers 
April Fools Day or All Fools Day is a worldwide phenomenon celebrated in all sorts of daft ways. From Beijing to Brussels, Edinburgh to Adelaide someone, somewhere will be trying a humorous trick on an unsuspecting person or another. The tradition of pranking goes back to Roman times and is sometimes indulged in by institutions such as the BBC and national newspapers. So be careful of what you are offered (up until midday anyway) on the 1st but be prepared for a fun surprise which, hopefully, will start this regeneration month off with a spring in its step. No hoaxers in The Village Advertiser of course, the pages are full of excellent companies offering a tip top service in our local area. 
BROADDITCH FARM in SOUTHFLEET are organising an EASTER BUNNY HUNT. Why not go down to the farm and give your lungs a spring clean whilst having some fun! Hunt amongst the spring flowers on their woodland trail to find the lost bunnies. When you have found them all it is time to claim your ‘egg-citing’ prize! Open every day from Saturday 25th March until Sunday 16th April during farm shop opening hours. Purchase your trail sheets from the Farm Shop then set off to the woods behind the duck pond. Trail sheets are £4 each, no pre-booking necessary. If you want to stay a while and enjoy a picnic there are picnic tables in the play area behind the duck pond . 
The prize in our April wordsearch competition is a £50 VOUCHER to spend at BLUEWATER in GREENHITHE, courtesy of THE VILLAGE ADVERTISER. The winner of the £50 VOUCHER to spend at THE CASTLE HOTEL in EYNSFORD, courtesy of Mollie is CAROLINE MOORE of WEST KINGSDOWN. The missing word being CHOCOLATES.

The 23rd April is not only the day of blisters, chafing in unlikely body places, muscle strain and tremendous satisfaction at completing the London Marathon which has now returned to its usual spot on the calendar after 3 years of cancellation and changes due to Covid 19 but it is also St Georges Day. Thousands will be celebrating with family, friends and charitable beneficiaries the completion of this daunting run but others will be sitting down to roast beef and Yorkshire pudding and drinking a toast to that historic slayer of another sort of dragon. Patron saints are rarely what they are cracked up to be but they act as symbols and perhaps in these turbulent times a good dose of St George’s steely resolve in slaying a monster, mythical of course, will keep this country of ours steadfastly strong.
