Snippets & info
  • Special offer at the White Lion: 2 course lunch for £11 & 3 course lunch for £13.50, available weekdays 12-3pm
  • Poppy Appeal. News from Roger Thomas, Royal British Legion "The Poppy Appeal 2019 in Tenterden and St Michaels has, to date, raised £22,150. This total does not include the donation we anticipate from the Waitrose Community Matters programme. As it currently stands, the total is much more than we anticipated after last Centenary year’s record breaking £25,000-plus, and is, once again, a testament to the local support for the Poppy Appeal. Thank you to all who contributed and supported this year’s Appeal."
  • Christmas Tree Festival. A big thank you from the Zion Baptist Church "The Christmas Tree Festival, held over the Christmas Market weekend in Zion Baptist Church, was a great success. Over 2,200 people came to view the trees, and to enjoy refreshments given freely by Zion Baptist church members. They enjoyed live music from our worship band, in a very friendly atmosphere. £779.26 in public donations was raised, £389.63 each going to Team Ben Hammond and Tenterden Christmas Cheer. The winner of the public vote for the trees were: The Memory Café, with St Michaels Primary School second and thus winner of the young people's entrants."
