October Fundraising Update – Sponsored Walk

Forty members and friends of the village were sponsored to raise funds for the Village Hall. They walked either the short circuit through Eynsford and Farningham or the long circuit to Otford via Romney Street returning through Shoreham. All enjoyed the sights and worked up an appetite for the barbecue provided by Norman’s with bread from Mark The Baker. Total funds raised were close to £3,000 and the record by one person was £417 – well done Molly! Sponsorship is still open. There are prizes for the most raised by an adult and by a junior. Many thanks to the walkers and to those who assisted. If you would like a copy of the walk map – please get in touch using the website contact form. James Staniland
