November 1977 - No.6

The Vicarage Lynsted

Last month I said that October would be a busy month. I was correct and it is by no means over. The are still. two harvest suppers and the Confirmation. to go. It has been a busy month but a happy one. The various Harvest Festivals were well attended and many people joined in giving thanks. In my two previous ministries both in urban parishes, harvest always seemed a little remote although we ploughed the fields and scattered with great gusto. In this part of Kent harvest does mean something to everyone and there is an atmosphere about our praise that is not present in the towns. The three parishes represent different types of farming (I can almost always tell which parish I an in by what is being grown!) but all are dependent on a good yield. It was good to see so many people coming to give thanks to God in their parish churches.
My love to you all, God bless, BILL HILL


HARVEST FESTIVALS

1. NORTON
Norton's harvest festival was on October 2nd in the evening. We followed the traditional form of Evensong, Lessons were read by Rex Boucher and Norman Laslett. As usual the church was beautifully decorated - a Norton Speciality. Each time I see it I wonder if they can do better and somehow they manage it time after time. A good number of people packed themselves into the church and as usual the volume of sound was capable of being heard a long way off. There is no doubt that Norton knows how.to celebrate harvest festivals. To all who decorated the church our congratulations and thanks.
2. NORTON SCHOOL
As usual the school held its festival in the school. The service was devised and led by the children themselves and took the form of readings, prayers and harvest hymns. After¬wards the produce was sold to the parents and others present and the proceeds given to the church to be sent to C.M.S.
3. LYNSTED SCHOOL
Lynsted School had two ceremonies for Harvest. In the morning the children carried their offerings through the village to the church and offered them there. They then arranged them on the platform as part of the decoration. In the evening. they met again this time with parents and friends for a service. This comprised readings, mimes, prayers and songs and was mainly carried out by the children. The mime was based on the story of Ruth and like its forerunner on St. Peter's Day was well done. Ron Harwood wrote and rehearsed the mime, Bert Clark played the organ and the Vicar acted as 'anchor man'. It is a joy to have the children in church and to foster closer links between school and congregation. Already the school is planning its Christmas service. People of Lynsted please note December 16th in your diaries!
4. KINGSDOWN CHURCH
An afternoon service this time on October 2nd.
A beautifully decorated church and a traditional evensong like service. The children carried their offerings to the altar where they were received and arranged. Andrew Hall looked after the music for us and special thanks are due to Ann, Christine, Jennifer and Gwen for making the church look really attractive for the
occasion.
5. LYNSTED CHURCH
Lynsted departed from tradition on October
9th when it held a Songs of Praise for Harvest. About sixty or seventy people gather together and sang some fourteen hymns either relating to harvest or to thanksgiving. We tried. to sing something old and something new and only one hymn came unstuck and this was an old one which no one seemed to know the tune. Apart from that the volume of sound was creditable. Lots, of hard work went into the decoration and the result was well worth the effort. The Screeton family produced two eyecatching displays one on the Rood stairs and the other in the corner. Alice Wiles and her friends took over the.. sanctuary Peggy, Jennifer, Marjorie, Bert and Phyllis and many others were all busily engaged "you in your corner and someone else in theirs:" "Squip" Easton as usual officiated at the coffee to revive flagging efforts.


LYNSTED CHURCH - MEMORIALS

As most people will know Lynsted Church is rich in memorials. The principle ones are those to the Teynham and Hugesson families. Time has not been kind to any of them and we have been engaged on trying to restore them. In the Roper chapel, Christopher, Lord Teynham shows what has been done so far and his father John awaits his turn. Work has now started in the Hugesson chapel with the founder of the family being the first to receive attention.
Maurice Keevil and Helen Wright are going to be working several days a week for the next few months and it is fascinating to watch the dead stone coming to life under his skilful hands. Once the Hugessons are complete we hope to move back again to the Ropers so that poor John will look like his son. At the moment he is in a very poor way.


LYNSTED CHURCH - WALLS

When the memorials are complete this part of the church will look splendid. It is a pity that the rest of the building looks rather dingy and dark. The reason is obviously the paint or rather wash has deteriorated with age and the plaster is crumbling very rapidly. At any moment a large portion on the North Side will fall down as it is only very loosely held to the brickwork underneath. The P.C.C. have been discussing the problem and feel that we must begin to consider what can be done. A sub¬committee is in being and it will be taking advice from experts as to the best way of tackling the problem. Not only tackling it but finding out how much it will cost. At the moment attempts to keep the church clean are doomed to failure because of the dirt and plaster which is constantly falling down from above.


NORTON CHURCH - the weathervane

As readers will remember we have mentioned the weather vane on several occasions. It is in much need of attention, having slipped sideways and consequently presents 'a somewhat drunken appearance. The Parochial Church Council together with the builders have been considering what to do with it. Obviously we could straighten it out but within a very short while the list will re-occur. To restore it to the vertical needs considerable work. The post will have to be reseated in the roof and in addition four guy ropes will need to be attached to four corners of the parapet. The estimated cost of doing this will run into at least three figures. The question is - are we justified in spending this amount of money on It? The P.C.C. felt that as the money for its original erection was subscribed by the village as a whole, the village should have the opportunity of making its voice heard. So please may we have your comments on this. Either to the Rector or to Norman or Jim. We will pass on the comments to the P.C.C. when they meet next time.


KINGSDOWN CHURCHYARD

Visitors to Kingsdown will see that the Churchyard has been transformed. The grass has been
tidied up, weeds dealt with and the appearance of the area is now much better. A generous donation from Maurice Hamlyn has gone a long way towards the cost. Our thanks to Maurice for his generosity and to Mr. Hawthorne for a magnificent job.


LYNSTED SCHOOL

The children much enjoyed their Harvest Service on the 7th and hope that all attended enjoyed it as well. Special thanks are due to Bert Clark who kindly played the organ again for us. (I am sure that we all enjoyed the service and thanks to the children who took part - Editor)
Our school centenary is to be celebrated on the 14th January 1978. Since our school is 100 years old on that date we want to make it a memorable occasion. We are trying to find out as much as we can about what it was really like many years ago. Would any of the old pupils (not necessarily 100 years old) who have interesting reminiscences, information, anec¬dotes, etc. please contact us. Also we appeal for any old photos of the school, staff or pupils from way back. Is there anybody out there who remembers, or who can help us?
Our CHRISTMAS SALE will be on Wednesday 23rd November at 2 p.m. in the School Hall. We would be grateful to anyone who can send us (or let us know about) anything we can sell e.g. S/H clothing, books, toys, games, odds and ends, anything!


FRIENDS OF LYNSTED SCHOOL

Why not help the school in its centenary year by becoming a Friend of Lynsted School. A modest 10p will secure your membership and a chance to do something to help the school and its children.

KINGSDOWN

Services at Kingsdown are as follows. On the first Sunday in the month, Holy Communion at 9 a.m. on the second Sunday we try to have a family service at 3 p.m. and for the other Sundays Evensong is at 3 p.m. At one time we could count on seven or eight people for evensong but due to deaths and removals from the parish the numbers have fallen to two or three. We will need to think about the
pattern of services during the winter, remembering the cost of heating, etc., We try to make the family service as lively as possible but with a congregation of six or seven it is rather difficult especially if the members of the family are all adults! Kingsdown residents and those interested in Kingsdown what about it!


CONFIRMATION

We hope to have an account of the Confirmation in our next issue. At the moment of writing we should have around 22 candidates - thirteen from Norton, two from Lynsted and seven from Teynham. This is the first confirmation at Norton for many years - the general opinion is at least 20. Obviously this is an occasion and we hope that as many people as possible will turn up to support the candidates. It will mean much to them to have their friends and neighbours with them on this important day in their lives.


NORTON SUNDAY SCHOOL

The number of candidates from Norton is due to the very great efforts of Evelyn Bray and Margaret Moor who for years have devotedly taught the children in Sunday School. We all. owe a great deal to them for their patient work week after week.


HORSE MATTERS

Life is seldom dull in the vicarage and the other morning Pat looked out the window and announced that a horse was cavorting around the garden. I set out to do something about it as requested. I like horses and had no doubt as to my ability to cope with the situation. A closer inspection of the anatomy of the horse indicated that I had a stallion to deal with. Moreover a stallion with a nasty look in its eye and two very energetic hind legs! After a mutual summing-up of the situation the creature set off around the house with me in hot pursuit (keeping a good distance from the hind legs). Luckily rescue was at hand and David Breaker secured him and took him in charge. My grateful thanks to David for his expertise. I have spent the year battling against black fly, green fly, flea-beetle, carrot fly, every other fly, rabbits, birds, cats and now horses! Who'd be a gardener!


SWALE PHILATELIC SOCIETY

In the list of local organisations printed on another page the Swale Philatelic Society is mentioned. As far as I know only two people from the three parishes are members.. There must surely be more stamp collectors around than that. For a modest £11 per annum you get at least a dozen interesting meetings, one or two auctions (for a good bargain) and lots of opportunities to acquire stamps. You will find the secretaries' name among the organisations or if you would like a personal intro, contact the vicar or Lawrence Easton.


HARVEST SUPPERS REVIEWED

I remember in my youth Harvest Suppers in the depth of Wiltshire. None was ever complete unless someone sang the Sow Song. Alas no one sang it at Norton or Lynsted but my enjoyment was not impaired for both occasions were delightful.
NORTON held their's on October 21st in the hall. About 50 people sat down to eat sausages, mash, baked beans, apple pie and ice cream. The food was admirable and there was plenty of it. During the evening there were auctions and raffles which raised a goodly sum for the church. All told with the profit on the meal and the various other activities the church has benefited by over £96.50. We can only thank the ladies who cooked and served the meal, as well as decorating the hall with flowers and hops so that we eat and drank in a fine setting. The hall which normally looks a little drab was transformed. Thank you all.
LYNSTED held their's the following evening in the Black Lion. Here about 45 people enjoyed a very beautifully prepared buffet supper. Drinks were available and everyone enjoyed their evening. Thanks from us all to Tim and Susan for their cooking, arranging and generally making it a memorable evening. During the course of if the 100 CLUB monthly draw took place.
Winners were:- 1st Prize (£20) Bert Clark.
2nd Prize (£1O) Derek Holt
3rd Prize ( £5) Laurie Hart
The next draw will be in the Lion on November 9th.


ROMAN CATHOLICS AT LYNSTED

On Thursday Oct. 13th Lynsted Church was the host to the Roman Catholics of Sittingbourne and Faversham. Mass was celebrated by Father Edgar Dunn of Sittingbourne and Father Okon of Faversham. About a hundred people were present including members of the Anglican congregation. The lessons and bidding prayers, were distributed between Anglicans and Roman Catholics. Both Father Dunn and the Vicar spoke to the congregation Lynsted was for long a Catholic strongholdwith the two families of the Ropers and the Huggessons retaining the Catholic faith. In his address Father Dunn reminded us that at Westminster Abbey that morning a monument had been unveiled to 700 people, who had died for their faith, both Catholic and Protestant, during the Reformation. The service in Lynsted was perhaps of more significance; like the Abbey congregation we had come-to "bury the hatchet" but on this occasion it was the ordinary people who were meeting together. Unity cannot be achieved by Church leaders only. The local congregations must come together. Lynsted on October 13th was a step in that direction. It was a great joy to be able to worship with our friends in the village and we hope and pray that it will be a step forward in the long road to Christian unity.
The evening finished with the typically Anglican method - tea and refreshments in the school hall. We are grateful to Father Dunn who started things moving and whose inspiration it was.


HARVEST PARCELS

Thanks to all those people who gave us names of people for parcels. We used the produce which had been sent by the children and congregation together with some additional items the cost of which was paid for by our old friend "Anon". Our thanks to them for their generosity. The total number of parcels made up and distributed was around 25. We have had several letters from the recipients saying how much they appreciated the thought. To people who are lonely or housebound a simple parcel like this can mean so much.
We hope to do something similar at Christmas and so contributions to help buy things as well as goods themselves would be much appreciated. The more we have the more and larger parcels we can distribute.
Both NORTON and KINGSDOWN sent theirs to Bensted House where it was gratefully received. To the people who acted as transport many thanks.


SOMEONE SOMEWHERE IS AWAITING A LETTER

At the end of last month someone wrote to the vicar and posted the letter on 29th September in Faversham. Unfortunately, it was addressed to "Faversham", the Post Office sent it to Sittingbourne for delivery. When it reached the vicarage it consisted of an empty envelope only. Either the writer forgot to put the letter in, forgot to seal it, or the gum was faulty. So someone is no doubt cursing the clergy for not answering their letters. If you wrote to me and haven't had an answer please let me know. It might even have been a cheque!


NORTON VILLAGE HALL

A successful film show was held in the hall recently. Although the income only just covered the outlay people enjoyed the programme. Another is planned for the new year and this time we hope that more people will be tempted to an evening at the pictures.
The HALLOWEEN PARTY has been cancelled. We realised that there was a lot on this month and people may prefer not to spend another evening in the hall. The Christmas party is still on. More details later.

Work has started on the redecoration of the kitchen. etc. Offers of help are urgently needed. The date of the main effort will be on November 6th at 10 a.m. Names of those willing to help please to Mrs. McKillop (Teynham 479) or Mr. Dale (Teynham 478). With the various items we have been given and some fresh paint etc. we hope to give the hall a much-needed facelift.


NORTON JUBILEE CROWNS

As most people will know the demand for the Jubilee Crowns was so great that the Mint was unable to produce the numbers "required on time". This meant that the children of Norton who were promised crowns have had to wait for them to be distributed. We hear that the bank is now able to supply then and they will be available: from Dr. Gray at Lyon Yard, Lewson Street. Children please collect from Dr. Gray.


LYNSTED FETE

Stallholders met in the Vicarage on Wednesday 12th October to discuss various aspects of this years fete while they were still. fresh in people's memories.
The coat of hiring chairs and tables had risen rapidly since last year and those present agreed that we should look nearer home to the various local organisations who might be prepared to let theirs Out and also that we should make t. necessary approaches and bookings as soon as Possible. We would be pleased to hear from anyone who has, or knows of, any chairs and tables for hire. The provision of enter¬tainment at the, fete, including that for children, was confirmed as a "must". Several suggestions were made and would be followed up Again we would be happy to hear from anyone who could give a lead on entertainers, the more local the better.
Various minor organisational shortcomings were noted to avoid a recurrence next.year but generally those present all agreed that it had been a happy occasion with a very satisfactory result. The first open meeting to discuss the 1978 fete will be held in January to which everybody who feel he has anything to contribute is invited. Further details will be announced in a future News Letter.


NEWS TRAVELS

Mrs. Thorne of No.2 Daphne Villas tells us her copy of the News Letter travels first to her daughter in Canterbury and then "when she gets it back" to her son in Birmingham. We would like to hear of any other copies that travel to distant parts.


JUMBLE SALES

Jumble sales can be great fun or hard :work very much depending on which side of the counter you are. It is amazing how much comes in and at times one has a suspicion that the same items are going around various sales. Or perhaps people buy at one and return to the next. There is something gascinating about other people's cast-offs and I am sure that all of us are willing to search for a bargain or twos There is always an air of expectancy when a parcel of "jumble" arrives as to what it will contain. Sometimes the wrong item arrives. I well remember searching through several cubic yards of jumble at Reigate in search of a pair of corsets. A dear old lady had washed out her foundation garment and stretched it on an over mantle to dry. Her son-in-law promptly gave the piece of furniture to jumble and the corsets went too. After a considerable search I emerged .triumphant with a garment only to find that the dear old lady swore they weren't hers. So back to the pile. Ultimately wearer and garment were re-united. So far this hasn't happened to me at Lynsted but there is always the possibility. All this is leading up to is the Lynsted sale which will.bq over by the-time most of you read this. Thanks to all those who provided the jumble, those who sorted, those who sold and those who bought. The proceeds to date are over £60.
