THE VICARAGE, LYNSTED, KENT.

As many of you will know we are mourning our daughter whose sudden and unexpected death has left us completely shattered. Pat, Nick and I would like to say thank you to all those people who wrote to us and who did many small acts of kindness. We will be writing to them all, in due course, but I am sure that they will understand if we take a few days to recover from the initial shock.
I would also like to thank all those people who enquired after me during my recent spell in bed. I was specially touched by the get well cards which came from the children.
God bless you all, Bill Hill


INFORMATION

In later issues we hope to provide further information sheets and we would like to hear of any changes to the details already provided and details of any other organisations not previously included.


LYNSTED SCHOOL FETE, Saturday 16th July

Ron Harwood maintained his reputation for picking goad weather for his events when the sun shone from the opening by "Miss Teynham"(Sue Lenthall) & her two "princesses"(Rene Breaker & Debbie Packer) to the final event, a challenge rounders match in which the children beat the parents.
Between these two events it was possible to buy almost anything including new clothes, fancy goods, household utensils, plants flowers, vegetables, books, babies' and dolls' clothes, model gliders; to try our luck with raffles, a bottle stall, a tombola, a treasure hunt or by guessing the name of a doll; to try our skills at darts, soccer shoot, "bean bag" shies or tenpin bowling; to feed ourselves on tea, cakes, hot dogs, iced lollies or fizzy drinks; to view the results of a painting competition (won by Linda Wardley & David Phipps), a pet show or a display of tins from "Beverley's Bygones"; to watch a fancy dress parade (won by Donna Shepherd as Miss Bo-Peep & John Olney as Dr. Foster), a display of country dancing by the School or a programme of childrens' sports ending in a team obstacle race worthy of "It's a Knockout" in which the winning total was 300 millilitres of water; or just to talk to old or new friends and laze in the sunshine.
In addition to providing an enjoyable after¬noon the Fete raised over £110 for school funds.


CHURCH ARMY VISIT

During the last few days of June and the early part of July we were pleased to welcome Captain Peter Hillyard-Russ of the Church Army who spent ten days in the parishes. His arrival more or less co-incided with the taking to his bed of the Vicar. Peter took over what he could in the way of services and generally was around. He seems to have met a good number of people which was one of the objects of his visit. He spent some time in the schools and his story of the pump at Steeple Bumsted was a classic and had the children in fits. He took over the St. Peter's Day service at Lynsted (an account of which appears elsewhere) and talked to the confirm¬ation class. We are very grateful to him for all that he did. During his visit he was entertained by a good number of people in the parishes and both he and I are grateful to those people who provided meals and a bed for him. Several times when he called in he confessed that he had not only eaten well but perhaps too well for his girth. After leaving us he was heading for Yorkshire to conduct a mission. Our thanks and prayers go with him.


CONFIRMATION CLASSES

The confirmation class has broken up for a few weeks. Several people are away or will be going away and it will do members good to have a break from classes. We will meet again on September 1st for the final fun-in to the day of confirmation.


LYNSTED PARISH COUNCIL

Notes of a meeting held at the School on Tuesday 12th July with Mrs. B. Friday, the Vice-Chairman, in the chair in the absence of Mr. B. Goldberg, the Chairman.
1. Highway Matters
(a) There was no further news regarding the promised repairs to the gully outside Anchor House and the renewal of the soakaway taking the drainage of the lay-by outside Lynchett House & The New Bothy. The Clerk (Mr. Vaughn) was asked to chase the K.C.C. on these matters.
(b) The Police do not agree that the parking outside Vigo Terrace Is a hazard to traffic using the lane. The Council did not accept this view and asked the Clerk to pursue the matter suggesting "yellow Lines" at this point and the use of the flat verge nearby for parking.
(c) It was reported that the situation regarding the parking of vehicles on the footpath at the junction of the A2 with Cellar Hill was now much improved.
2. Planning Matters
(a) It was agreed that references to controversial planning issues discussed at meetings should be excluded from press releases in future especially where they involved local residents.
(b) The following applications were recommended for approval:-
(i) A new bungalow as part of the develop¬ment at "Aymers".-
(ii) A revised plan for extensions at Rose Cottage.
(iii)A new hairdressing salon in London Road.
(c) As meetings were now at two-month intervals it was agreed to appoint a planning sub¬committee of the more readily available members to deal with urgent matters between meetings.
3. Lighting
(a) The new light at the top of the hill in the village was now functioning and was meeting with general approval.
(b) A grant from Swale D.C. covering last year's lighting maintanance costs had now been received.
4. Silver Jubilee
(a) Mr. Smith reported on the local celebrations The council felt that the whole thing had been a tremendous success, a credit to all concerned, and recorded its thanks to Mr. John Martin's committee and helpers far their efforts.
(b) As there had already been a door-to-door collection for the national appeal the Council decided not to organise any additional efforts.
5. Other Matters
(a) As no reply had been received from Swale D.C. regarding the request for the provision of Old People's Bungalows in the Parish, the Clerk was asked to pursue the matter pointing out where land was available.
(b) The Clerk reported that the accounts for 1976/77 had been audited and found to be satisfactory.
(c) The Clerk read a letter from the Vicar offering the use of the Vicarage Parish Room for Council meetings as the school costs were
now so expensive. The members were most appreciative and were very happy to accept. The Clerk was asked to contact the Vicar in order to agree the suitability of the proposed meeting dates and agree arrangements for the reimbursement of any costs involved (heating, lighting, etc) Messrs Bage, Cork and Hamlyn were re-appointed as the council's nominees on the Board of School Managers for the next four years.


Harry Sutton

News reached us during the month of the death of Harry Sutton, who, although in recent years was responsible for apprentices' training at the Sittingbourne and Kemsley Mills, will mostly be remembered with his wife Amy for their lively tenure of the Black Lion in the fifties. Harry succeeded his mother Mrs. Olive Branch who had been the "Lion's" popular licensee during the war and early post-war years. To Amy and son Michael we offer our sympathy.


THANKS

We are sure that everyone who uses the Trefoil corner would like to thank Bill Beaney for cutting back the grass on that corner. It had become so overgrown that it was impossible to see anything coming either up or down the road. It is to be hoped that something can be done to that corner to make it safer not only for people on foot but for cars as well.


WEDDING AT LYNSTED

Mandy Davies and Charles Kewley were married in Lynsted Church on June 25th. The church looked lovely, the bride even lovelier and the whole occasion was, as one visitor said after¬wards, one of the happiest weddings they had ever attended - well it's not often the bride pipes up with a comment on the Vicar's address, is it? We wish them both all happiness in their life together.


ST. PETER'S DAY AT LYNSTED

Lynsted School, parents and friends together with regular members of the congregation joined in celebrating St. Peter's Day. (29th June) in Lynsted Church, The principal feature was the series of mimes by the youngsters of the School to readings by their headmaster Ron Harwood, recording events in the life of St. Peter. The provision of a boat for the ocoasion by Fred Smith considerably added to the atmosphere of two of the scenes. Peter (from the Church Army) kept the prescribed order of things going, led us in our prayers and gave us a lively look at St. Peter in his address. Paintings by the School depicting scenes. in the life of the Saint were on display and Ron was agreeable to their remaining in Church for the benefit of those who were not there to see them that night.
A happy occasion, thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended, Was diminished only by the fact that the Vicar,who had been taken ill the night before was not able to be with us. He must, however, have been very heartened by the success of the evening. D.B.


ST. PETER'S DAY. ANOTHER VIEW

On Wednesday 29th June it was St. Peter's Day. There was a service in church, Unfortunately the Lynsted Vicar could not join us. Some of us from Lynsted School did a mime of some of the scenes in St. Peter's life. Altogether the service went very well. CLAIRE KEMP


OLD TESTAMENT UP TO DATE

The following originally appeared in the British Sugar Company Magazine. It seemed too good not to pass it one and we do so (without permission).
And God said unto Noah "Make thee an ark of gopher wood, and of every living thing, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark to keep them alive". And Noah said, "Sign here and leave a deposit". The Lord signed there and left a deposit.
And Noah was 600 years old when the flood waters came upon the earth. And the Lord said unto Noah, "Where is the ark which I commanded thee to build?" And Noah said unto the Lord. "Verily I have had three carpenters off ill. The gopher rood supplier hath let me down, and the damp course specialist hath not turned up. What can I do, Lord?" And Noah said further unto the Lord "Mine subcontractor hath gone bankrupt, the plumber hath gone to Majorca on Monday - yea, even though I did offer him double time. Shcm, my son who helpeth me on the ark side of the business, hath formed a pop-group with his brothers Ham and Japheth. Lord, I am undone." And God said in his wrath, "Noah, do not thou muckest me about? What about the animals? Two of every sort have I ordered to come unto thee to keep them alive. Where, for example, are the giraffes?" And Noah said unto the Lord, "The van cometh Tuesday, Yea, it will be so'." And the Lord said, "How about the unicorns?" And Noah wrung his hands and wept, saying "Lord, they are a discontinued line. Thou canst not get unicorns for love nor money." And God said, "Come thou, Noah, I have left thee a deposit, and thou hast signed a contract. Where are the monkeys, and the bears, and the hippopotami, and the elephant, and the zebra, two of every kind, and also of the fowls of the
8 air in sevens?" And Noah said unto the Lord,

"They have been delivered to the wrong address, but should arrive on Friday, all but the fowls of the air in sevens, for it hath just been told me that fowls of the air are supplied only in half dozens." And Noah said "Lord, Lord, Thou knowest what it is like with delivery dates."
And the Lord in his wisdom said, "Noah, my son, I know. I know. Why else dost thou think I have caused a flood to descend upon the earth?"


LYNSTED 100 CLUB

Soon after 9 o'clock on 6th July inthe Black Lion's club room, the 25 members present knew the worst except Mr. John Allan, of course, who won the £200 top prize. Mrs. E.M. Hodges of Lynsted who was not present won the £25 prize. After the draw the members drank the health of the winner (at his expense), ate Tim's snacks and generally enjoyed themselves in pleasant company. The Vicar "clobbered by a virus" wrote to apologise for not being there, to thank all for their support and to say how much we owed Laurence Easton for organising the club. The first draw of the new session will be in the Black Lion on August 10th.


WEIGHT LIFTING AND TRAINING

Some months ago we mentioned the coaching given by C. Allen-Daynes to anyone who is interested in weight lifting and training. We are repeat¬ing the announcement now that our circulation is much wider so as to let people who may have missed the first notice know that this rapidly growing sport is available locally. Mr. Allen Daynes is a member of the National Amateur Body Building Association as well as being a member of Charles Atlas. Anyone interested please contact him on Teynham 350.

LYNSTED SCHOOL

SCHOOL'S OUT! Yes - and we're not 'in' again until Wednesday 7th September (much to some of our mums' dismay). You know, the authorities still occasionally talk about four school terms a year, and shorter holidays in between - but I don't think anyone yet is taking it seriously.
Anyway the summer terms has finished and the school is strangely silent - and I've got time to recall some of the happy and successful occasions that were enjoyed by the children and many of the grown-ups. The talk given to our "Friends" association on Nature Conservation in Kent by Mrs. Valerie Hewitt is worth remembering. I'm sure everyone present came away ready for a more perceptive look at our countryside.
The St. Peter's Day service was a "first" for our church and school to come together in joint celebration of a special event - and it won't be the last by a long way. Sadly, our Vicar missed it - but the "get-well"
messages from the children soon had the desired effect.
Our sponsored walk has been an enormous success - having to date raised over £227(!) for our "Friends" Association funds. And finally our Summer Fete once again enjoyed fine weather and a good attendance. I'd like to thank everybody who helped by name, but the list would be too long for the space: However, I think special mention must go to Mrs.Clark and Mrs. Nash of Bogle Cottages, who made such lovely things for their small stall, which they managed to the tune of about £10. Altogether the fete raised over £110 for school funds. Well, that's it until next term starts. I hope all the children have a lovely holiday ¬and my thoughts will go with those children 12 next term who start at the "big schools".
Ron Harwood

LYNSTED SCHOOL SPONSORED WALK

Lynsted School organised a sponsored walk on Saturday 2nd July, to try-and raise enough money for a microscope for the school. There were six groups and an adult leader for each group. Luckily the weather was sunny with not even a slight breeze. 54 people attended the walk. The walk was 12.5km (9 miles) and apart from two boys and one girl everyone completed the walk.
The walk was through corn fields where every¬one kept in single file, mustard fields, long grass and woods. The first group was led by Mr. Wardley who put up red flags to who every one the way.
There were eight check points and you had a form that when you passed a check point the person there would sign his/her signature, on your form. At two check points you had a drink of orange.
We left :the school at 9,30 a.m. and most people finished at 1.00 p.m. We are all hoping to raise as much as £150.

KINGSDOWN

A very successful Strawberry and Wine Party took place at Yew Tree Cottage recently in aid of the National Childbirth Trust. The weather was kind, the sun shone, and the strawberries were good. A lot of very hard work went into it and Rosemarie and Andrew Hall deserve our thanks for organising it.

NORTON JUBILEE FUND

After all the bills for the children's party and the evening party had been paid a sum of money amounting to over £80. This money had been subscribed by the the village and it was felt that they should decide on how it should be spent. Consequently a special meeting took place before the routine Council Meeting. Several suggestions were made and the two most popular were either some kind of memorial or a donation to the Villge Hall Committee for the purchase of a storage shed or other purposes. Finally the meeting agreed that a combination of both ideas would be possible. Therefore a recommendation was made to the Council that the bulk of the money be handed to the Hall Committee but a small part of it should go towards a tree which would commemorate the Jubilee.

LYNSTED FETE

Only a month today before the great event of the year. Offers of help and for things to sell are still very welcome and a list of stall holders appears on page 11. Should you have difficulty in contacting any particular stall holder due to holidays, etc., please contact any of the others on the list who will no doubt receive your offers or advise you where to take them.

NORTON SCHOOL

The children have now broken up for the Summer holidays. They completed the term with a service in church arranged by themselves. These have become a feature which we hope will continue. It would be nice if we could make more of it and have some adults present so as to give the children experience in worshipping with other people.
They all enjoyed their trip to London and their explorations around Greenwich. I gather that their were taken around the Museum, the Cutty Sark and the Observatory.
The Sports Day was line and things went well. The Rector, remembering what happened to him last year, as careful to arrange that he was under-no temptation to join in. He officiated as the official starter and keep a wary eye on one or two young gentlemen Who tried to beat the gun. He also tried to keep a firm eye on the eggs which were, on occasions, being held into the spoon by eager thumbs. Our congratulations to the winners and commiseration to the losers.
Members of the P.T.A will be wondering why the storage shed for Which they have worked has not yet appeared. The fault is not with either the Managers, Mrs. Parkes or the P.T.A.
The powers that be at the County Educational Department arehave now broken up. As soonsummerey give the go-ahead things will start moving but until the magic rubber stamp is applied to our plan nothing can be done. If anyone can suggest ways and means of persuading the stamping process to hurry we would be pleased to have them.
