Dear Advertisers and Readers 
After a very wet spring and what looks like finally some kind of summer we can get out and about enjoying our local countryside and joining in with events around our areas. So to keep you occupied there is plenty going on. The biggest outdoor event in our county is the Kent County Show at Detling from Friday 7th July — Sunday 9th July. The Hop Farm at Paddock Wood is open all through the summer holidays with lots of activities for all. Or perhaps visit Eagle Heights Wildlife Foundation in Eynsford, with Bird displays, Alpaca Trekking, Husky Hiking or Meerkat experiences to name but a few.
