'WELCOME ONE AND ALL' PROJECT - TO RECEIVE £10,000
This is the name of our project for which, with the encouragement and help of NW Kent Countryside Partnership, we applied for funding from Tesco's Bags of Help. We want to encourage more of the community (human and wildlife!) to use and enjoy our spacious historical churchyard and garden of remembrance. We were delighted to hear that we were one of three local community groups that had secured funding, although the exact amount was to be decided by in-store voting.
