Hurst Green village voice

Robertsbridge Aviation Society have a speaker for their next meeting on Monday September 17.

Andy Saunders will talk about the Spitfire MK1 P9374 which first flew on February 23 1940, and was shot down on May 25 1940, having completed 32.05 flight hours. It was recovered during the 1980’s and underwent a massive restoration, eventually flying again on August 30 2011.

The meeting is at Bush barn Robertsbridge, start time 8.15pm sharp, non members may attend, free entry but a donation please, for further information telephone 01424 773428. Many thanks to those who supported the Jumble sale last week, a profit of £263 was made towards the upkeep of the Aviation Museum.

There is currently at least one allotment plot available, a bit late in the year now for getting crops for this year but taking on a plot now would give a new tenant plenty of time to get the plot prepared for the next growing season. If you might be interested in taking on a plot, contact Maureen Harniman on 01580 860251, or if you want to find out more you can contact me, I have one of the plots so can probably answer most of your queries. Priority is given to Hurst green residents, but if none are waiting for a plot spare plots can be allocated to residents of neighbouring villages. If you are not sure if an allotment is for you, get in touch and take a look, you might be inspired to take one on.

Remember, if you want details of your events and organisations included in this column, I have to rely on you sending me the details, I will only be able to include information that is sent to me so it is up to you to make sure I get the details.

If you think you might like to take over this column please get in touch with me or contact the paper for details.

Get details of your events to me as soon as possible, so that i can give your event advance publicity, if you have a program of events fro future months let me have details and I will include in the column. To be sure of inclusion in the next edition get your details to me by 10pm on Mondays, but as early as possible to enable me to prepare the item and check any queries with you.
