Christmas Craft Fair at Abbey Physic Community Garden

Our friends, the Abbey Physic Community Garden would like to invite you all along to their evening Christmas Craft Fair on Thursday 22nd November from 6pm to 8.30pm. They’ll be lighting up the garden for the first time, selling beautiful handmade crafts and making Christmas wreaths to order. All proceeds will be going towards supporting the local producers of the crafts and the garden itself.

To keep you warm while you browse there’ll be baked potatoes from the clay oven, mince pies, mulled apple juice, tea/coffee and more.

We really hope you can join them for a magical festive evening.

Tree Planting

Swale FoE is planting trees donated by the Woodland Trust for the Kent Wildlife Trust as part of the Wilderness Downs Project – at Bowls Wood, near Stalisfield, on Saturday November 10th. This will complete the project we began in March. The work will not be heavy but there are a lot of saplings to plant so the more volunteers the better: partners, offspring, siblings and friends will be welcome. Healthy exercise in beautiful countryside and good company – and for a worthwhile cause: what better way to celebrate the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness?

If you mean to join us please email me and let me know whether you will need or can provide transport to the site – we’ll try to minimise car use.  For independent travellers the rendezvous is opposite the Plough Inn at Stalisfield Green ME13 0HY at 10.00am.  There is a grassed area outside the village hall, where we could assemble prior to going to the work site (at grid ref. TQ 955515 in case you miss the rendezvous).  Wear stout, warm and waterproof clothing and footwear, bring a garden spade (or two if you have them) some lunch and a hot drink.
