Dear Readers & Advertisers 
Restrictions to our daily and social lives are lifting, albeit slowly, but one thing returns every September – the start of the new school year. Pupils will be returning to their classrooms hopefully without masks and social distancing. With a bit of luck normal school activities will be taking place and recharged teachers will be itching to get their classes up to speed. Exam regimes have been changed, due to the pandemic, but let us hope as the Covid scourge fades into the background of our lives, they can be sat, passed (or failed of course) and optimistic bright futures can be looked forward to. As the Monty Python crew irreverently said “Always look on the bright side of life”. 
Remember to enter our September Word Search competition. The prize this month is A MEAL FOR 2 WITH A BOTTLE OF WINE courtesy of THE GREEN MAN, LONGFIELD HILL. Entry deadline is 14th September. The winner of THE BUMPER MEAT BARBECUE PACK courtesy of MICHAEL at LONGFIELD BUTCHERS in the August competition was RITA WHITEFIELD of GREENHITHE the missing word being CARAVAN.

As the country limps back to some sort of normality, organisations whom have lost considerable income will be trying to claw some back with rearranged events. Farningham Day takes place on Saturday 4th at Market Meadow and the Village Hall from 11am – 3pm and the Friends of Kent Churches Ride & Stride sets off on the following Saturday 11th..Another held over event is the Parish of Fawkham & Hartley Summer Fayre being a reincarnated as an Autumn one on Saturday 18th at St Mary’s Church Meadow, Fawkham Road, Fawkham DA3 8EQ at 12noon to 4pm. All the usual fare and stalls will be available plus a luxury raffle. The monthly Craft Fairs and Markets at New Ash Green Village Hall are proving very popular and the next one takes place on Sunday 19th September. Make sure to be there to pick up a bargain. 
And last but not least, Lynsey Seex will be back with her Slimming World groups at the newly refurbished Longfield Community Hall from Monday 6th September and she is looking forward to seeing all the old faces as well as some new faces. Let’s shift those lock down pounds! WELCOME BACK LYNSEY! 
Carole, Sally, Colin.
