Dear Advertisers and Readers
Are we really out of bondage or not? As this magazine goes to print many purveyors of doom are suggesting that full release from lockdown is premature. The poor old government has to make more difficult decisions. Balancing the effects of the virus against the harm done to life and the economy will not be easy. There surely must come a time when society has to live with Covid 19 as it has to with many other infections, risks and hazards too numerous to mention. It is called life and we must get back to it as soon as possible, even if it means living nearer to home and by staying within the national boundaries. Shopping locally makes good sense anytime but during Covid days the deal becomes even better and our loyal advertisers are ready willing and able to service your every need .

Things are beginning to open up and a shortened version of the Kent Show, The Kent County Summer Fayre, takes place at the County Showground, Detling on Saturday 10th July and Sunday 11th. Nationally great events are being allowed, albeit with reduced attendances, such as Wimbledon and the British Grand Prix. Extending the Covid restriction period into this month (19th July is Liberation Day Mk 2) will not help and many music festivals, fetes etc will not be put on. However, in Hartley there is a live music event on Sunday 25th July at Manor Field, Church Road featuring local favourites, Shane Hampshier and the Mike Richards Big Band. Next month the Rude Mechanical Theatre Company returns to our area to perform their new show, ‘Little Lily Harley’ (the extraordinary story of Charlie Chaplin’s childhood) at Hartley Country Club on 8th August and Fairseat Village Hall Field on 19th August.
Carole, Sally, Colin.
