We are delighted to welcome Charlotte O’Neill as our Director of Music. Charlotte lives with her husband Richard and their family at our edge of Hawkhurst; she is a Durham University graduate and has led choirs in her college there and at churches in Houston Texas, Frittenden and Maidstone.
Charlotte has settled into leading choir practice, which is now on a Friday evening. Please do come along and meet her.
The Silent Auction is a very popular feature of the Fete (this Saturday 24th June from 12-4pm) and we have received some wonderful experiences and items including: A day return plane trip from Headcorn to Le Touquet for two; a day’s birdwatching with Charles Trollope; a signed England Rugby Shirt, and many more. Don’t forget to browse the full list and bid at the Fete!
