Message from thr Chair
Since our last Newsletter we have attended the Broyle Country Show and Camper Marmalade at Polegate. Both were blessed by good weather and there was a good level of footfall. It was a little disappointing that we had less than hope for members attending these events but let’s hope that as things return to more normality, that this will pick up at future events.
At both events, Macmillan had very successful tombola’s and it was good to see this very worthwhile charity being supported.
Below are details of our events for the remainder of the year. For the majority there are still spaces available so we would love to see you there. Please contact the organisers as shown below if you would like to join us. Some have closing dates for applications as we need to finalise our arrangements with those running the events regarding space required and marquee sizes.
20th and 21st August Tractorfest, Biddenden. A popular event returning to its previous venue at Holden Farm, Sissinghurst Road, Biddenden, TN27 8EZ. Please note that this is not the venue shown on the Booking Form or Bookmarks. There are still spaces available so please send Booking Forms to Virginia as soon as possible but by 23rd July at the latest.

16th to 18th September Bentley Woodfair. This will be our last outdoor event of the year and a new one for us.
