It hasn't felt like much of a summer , but it's already August 19th. Schools will go back soon, and the lull of the holiday season will come to an end. I'm planning events for the autumn and winter - watch this space for more details - but in the meantime, here are a couple of things you might like to get involved in.
PETANQUE/ BAT AND TRAP AFTERNOON at the Crown pub. Never played Petanque or Bat and Trap? Come along and try your hand on September 9th at the Crown (starting 3pm) . No expertise necessary – a fun afternoon for anyone, in aid of church funds. Tickets £2.50 (£1.50 children). Tea, coffee and home-made cake provided (I expect stronger liquids could also be purchased…) Please sign the list in church if you’d like to come. More details from Barbara Martin or any of the events committee.
CHARITY GOLF DAY for Sevenoaks Area Youth Trust and Youth Befriending 121. There will be a Charity Golf Day on September 20th at Lullingstone Golf Course. The entrance fee is £39.50 and includes breakfast and lunch. The two charities which will benefit work with teenagers in the area and do wonderful work on a shoestring. If you enjoy golf and would like to support them, there are more details on flyers at the back of church or at http://www.sayt.org.uk/.
ANNUAL SPONSORED BIKE RIDE/WALK. This takes place on Sept 8th this year. Money raised is divided equally between Seal and Friends of Kent churches, which supports churches across the area. We need cyclists and walkers, and people to welcome those who visit our church. Welcomers can also now be sponsored! If you would like to help in any way please sign the relevant lists at the back of church or contact Nicky Harvey.
