was with sadness that I learned of
Donald’s death after a short illness at the age of 91. It was a privilege to serve alongside him as
one of the Church Wardens at St John the Baptist for part of his 13 years (1979
-1992) at the helm of the Benefice (as it then had been created) of Teston,
West Farleigh and Wateringbury.
late ordinand (having been an RAF pilot and senior manager in industry) he
achieved much for the parish during that time on its journey of development,
establishing the choir and most importantly removing the front rows of pews
which literally were beneath the pulpit (enabling a good view of the parson’s
nose so to speak). He replaced them with
staging and we can now reflect on how significant that has been in the church’s
life encouraging community use for concerts, Wateringbury Players productions,
talks and countless fund raising events like the Christmas Bazaar. I don’t know what kind of a hold he had over
Archdeacon Richard Mason at the time but an Archdeacon’s Certificate
authorising the work (rare as hen’s teeth) was granted.
was indefatigable in his service to the church and bringing the good news of
the gospel to all levels of the community against the background of his wife
Truda’s ill health, who predeceased him.
May they both now rest in peace in God’s nearer presence. Barry
A Memorial Service is being held on 23 May at 1.30pm in St Nicholas Church, Allington to

Thank you to those who put Presidents Donald Trump and Jong Un Kim into

APRIL PARISH COUNCIL MEETING NOTES
Allotments Two of the vacant plots at the Old Road
allotments had been taken. There was one
remaining vacant plot. Most of the 17
allotment holders had paid this year’s rental; reminders would be sent for the
3 who had not yet paid.
Car Park A meeting had been held with officers from T
& M Borough Council who owned the car park. Councillors discussed possible
scenarios for managing the car park. Councillors had consulted with local
business on the subject of parking in the village. If T & M decide to charge for parking at
all their car parks there is little the Parish Council can do. Any plans for major changes to the terms for
using the village car park will be the subject of a public consultation process
to give local residents and business an opportunity to have their say.
Councillor Balfour reported that additional funding had been made available
from Central Government to repair the County’s roads. It was not nearly enough, but it was a step
in the right direction. KCC preferred to
resurface roads but this was not possible due to budget restraints. They used local contractors to repair
potholes as it was felt they took greater pride in doing quality repairs.
KCC had been able to balance its budget this year,
further cuts will have to be made.
Crime Report taken from the Kent
police website showed 9 reported crimes
in January 1 burglary, 1 theft, 1
vehicle crime, 2 anti social behaviour, 2 public order, 2 criminal damage
arson. Our local PCSO Wendy Stanley was at the meeting and was asked about the
criminal damage arson crimes. She had
made enquiries and no-one seemed able to give any details of arson. She gave details of more recent crimes: a
burglary with entry by a kitchen door when jewellery was stolen, burglary at
Where Memories Meet when silver items were stolen, and a youth attempting to
access a property which was being renovated.
Wendy also wished to alert the public to 2 door-to-door scams which were
currently being practised. Householders
being told lead needed replacing on house roofs and householders being told
that caller needed access to loft space to assess energy losses relating to a
Dog Fouling on the track down to
the fields and on the fields themselves had been discussed at last month’s
Public Open Forum. Councillor Stephen Tickner had investigated the cost of a
Dog Poo Bag dispenser (£79) and metal sign (£40). The cost of 800 bio degradable bags would be
£23. Councillors agreed to buy and
install one dispenser initially, to see if this would help resolve the
Flood Group It wasreported that the Group would remain in existence primarily to monitor
progress towards agreed objectives.
Maidstone MP Helen Grant had been very supportive of the Group.
Playing Fields Councillor Tickner reported that the
AGM of the Sports and Recreation Association was due to take place in April and
he would attend as the Council’s representative.
It was hoped that the equipment would be installed shortly at the Cross
Roads. T & M Borough Council were
awaiting the start of its new financial year (April) in order to have the
funding available to finance the installation costs of about £2,500.
Watch The chairman
thanked the small local team for their work during the past month which had
resulted in 352 Observations of speeding vehicles which generated, 49 letters
to repeat (twice or more) offenders, one of which was
hand delivered, 18 letters had to be sent to high end offenders (45+ mph in a
30 mph zone), one of which was hand delivered.
The observations also highlighted 5 vehicles being driven without Road
Tax and/or MOT. The “highlights” of the month were a minibus being driven along
Tonbridge Road, in a westerly direction, past Lodge Close, at a speed of 60mph,
and a motorbike observed approaching the traffic lights at 67mph, past our
position outside number 22 Red Hill
was agreed to contact Nettlestead Parish Council (as the box was in their
parish) to suggest the parishes worked
together to approach the Railway
authorities regarding the care of the box when the automatic barriers were
Street Lighting The company who were presently contracted to
repair the street lights owned by the Parish Council had not responded to any
requests to make the necessary repairs, they had also broken their contract by
not invoicing the council since last August.
The clerk was asked to contact adjoining parish councils to see who
repaired their street lights in an attempt to find a reliable contractor.
Planning Councillors had no objections to plans for a
loft conversion at 41 Bow Road.
Possible breaches of planning laws on
green belt land, part of which came
under T & M BC and part under Maidstone BC, were discussed. After debating the problems incurred
Councillors decided if necessary to write to the Chief Executive of T & M
to formally register their discontent at the apparent failure of T & M
planning officers to liaise with Maidstone BC who had offered to deal with the
matter, or to take any actions themselves.
the public open forum the feasibility of the plans for extra traffic lanes at
the cross roads and the possibility of parking charges at the village car park
Next meetings The public are very
welcome to attend the next general meeting of the Parish Council at 7.30pm in the village hall on Tuesday 1 May

councillors and to talk over any matters of local concern in an informal

SHEENA’S JAMS AND MARMALADES AND GORDON’S PRESERVES
Following the recent refurbishment of
the Post Office we were offered the opportunity to sell our produce in the store
which we gladly accepted. This has
turned out to be far more successful than we had ever imagined and it has been
great to receive such good feedback about our products. Unfortunately this has caused us an
unanticipated problem in that to provide sufficient stock we would need to gear
up our produce considerably. This would
move it from being what is fundamentally a hobby into a business and we would
then need to meet all the business rules such as having a stainless steel
kitchen and being able to state on the labels exactly the percentage of fruit,
sugar etc was in the finished item.
As we have only recently moved into
the village and just got a new kitchen, replacing it doesn’t seem like a good
idea and all the other requirements are beyond what we really want to do. So it
is with great sadness and reluctance that we have had to remove our produce
from the Post Office which is a great shame as it was so successful. We would like to thank Nathan and his team for
offering us the opportunity and wish them continued success with their venture.
Do please continue to support them. As
we are now living in the village, customers are very welcome to contact us
direct at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can let you know our current stock
and arrange a convenient time for you to collect it from our house.

speaker on the 21 March was Frank Turner on the wreck of the Liberty Ship, US
Richard Montgomery. There are still
explosives on board the ship as it was considered too expensive to remove. In 1940 it had cost £96,000 to remove 3,000
tons of explosives.
WAR NEWS FOR MAY 1918
9 British naval raid on Ostend, Belgium.
First RAF air raids on German towns.
27 Start of Third Battle of Aisne which takes
Germans to within 35 miles of Paris.
suffered three war fatalities on the Western Front in May. This was despite the relative lull in fighting
before the start of the German offensive on the River Aisne at the end of the
Albert Rogers was wounded on 3rd May and died the
following day in a Casualty Clearing Station. Born in Wateringbury but later living in
Maidstone, he had been one of 10 children. He had emigrated to Australia by himself,
aged 19, just before the start of the war. It was a six week journey from Liverpool
to Adelaide on the White Star
Line's ship, Irishman. He joined up as a volunteer in Australia
and was in the 48th Battalion of the Australian Infantry. Australia, given its population, provided
a large number of men to allied forces and suffered a high mortality rate. Albert’s battalion fought in the Somme and
he is buried at a small cemetery in Vignacourt, a Somme village some 25
miles west of Albert.
Percy Adams was killed on 16th May. He came from a family of 9 children and lived
in Latter’s Buildings on Old Road. Four
of his brothers served in the war and his elder brother, Frederick, had been
killed on the Somme in 1916. Percy is described as a “carter” in the 1911
census. He married a Wateringbury girl,
Ellen Kirby in Wateringbury Church soon after the outbreak of war, on 22nd
August 1914. He was possibly a late
conscript as he does not appear on the vicar’s January 1917 list of serving
parishioners. He was in the Royal
Garrison Artillery and is buried in the Gwalia cemetery, near Ypres in Belgium.
Benjamin Stevens died of wounds 26th May. He came originally from Offham but after his
father died he and his mother moved to Springdale Terrace, Nettlestead. He worked as a farm labourer. Initially he was
rejected by the army on medical grounds. The vicar included him on a list he published
of those who had been medically rejected, an attempt to protect them from the
attentions of ladies who handed out white feathers. He was in the Grenadier Guards who, in 1918,
were located in the Somme area of France. He is buried at a small village called
Gezaincourt, the site of several Casualty Clearing Stations.
The Girls’ School Log in May 1918 makes interesting
reading. On 1st May there is a detailed description of the crowning of Lorna
Bannister as the May Queen. Empire Day was celebrated on the 24th. Two girls, falsely pretending they had a
qualifying job, had obtained certificates exempting them from attending school.
The parents were prosecuted and fined.
Two girls were excluded from school for having dirty hair, one returning before
any improvement had been achieved. Terry Bird

April walk was slightly adjusted because of the conditions underfoot due to the
amount of rain which had fallen. So as the river had burst its banks, instead
of my planned river walk we had a road
walk to Love Lane then via the Millpond to Old Road and Wistaria Cottage
passing Flite Wood, (not long before the Nightingales return here) and Kings
Hill golf course to Canon Lane then following the path at the edge of Cattering

BABY & TODDLER GROUP
usual we are enjoying our sessions at our toddler group. Our term ended with
our Easter celebrations. The children made Easter cards, followed by a Easter
hat competition, some of which were spectacular. We finished with our Easter
egg hunt, where the children had to find and count the bunnies around the hall. At each session we have lots of toys to play
with, there are craft and singing sessions and snack time. If you are
interested in joining us, we meet every Wednesday and Friday morning during
term time between 10am and Noon. The cost is £2 for the first child and £1
for any others, this includes snacks for the children and tea/coffee or the
adults. For more information please
contact Linda on 01732 522 437.
CE PRIMARY SCHOOL
always arrives with heaps of warm sunshine, fiercely contested den building,
informal gymnastic routines and friendly football matches on the field - and
the trials and tribulations of national examinations. Our Year 1 pupils will be
taking the phonics screening test, our Year 2 pupils will be demonstrating
their proficiency in maths, reading and writing and our Year 6 pupils will be
sitting their SATs which mark the end of their primary school years. The
results of these examinations are pored over by our teaching staff to determine
what we’re teaching well (as measured by these particular tests) and any areas
we need to address. What the tests don’t measure are also enormously important:
a child’s determination and resilience, a capacity for leadership, acts of
kindness and generosity, talent for sport, ability with music, art and drama,
teamwork and outdoor adventurousness. At Wateringbury, we firmly believe in
nurturing all of these.
Our annual Spring
Concert is always a highlight of Term 5, with more than 40 children performing
solos, in ensembles or as part of the school orchestra or choir. Music at
Wateringbury continues to grow and enriches both our school and our pupils’
lives. As always, we marked St George’s Day with our annual flagpole
assembly with uniformed groups proudly on parade.
In line with schools
and businesses across the country, we are preparing for compliance with the new
General Data Protection Regulations which is a time-consuming but important set
of tasks and safeguards to complete.
5 ends on Friday 25th May and our final term of the year commences on 4th June
- when our Year 6 class will embark on their week-long residential trip to the
Isle of Wight.Chasey

SUMMER PARTY - SAT 30 JUNE - ALL WELCOME - FREE ENTRY Friends
of Wateringbury Primary School are pleased to announce that we will be holding
our first Summer Party on Saturday 30 June. Entrance is free and everyone is
welcome between 4pm and 7pm. The event will be held at Wateringbury School and
will include a barbecue, music, inflatables, games, activities, face painting
and more. Please note that some items are chargeable on the day so please bring
cash along with you. We hope that this will be a fun, informal afternoon
attracting pupils, families and our village as a whole. As always, our events
are run by a team of volunteers. If you would like to be involved or can pledge
any help on the day please e-mail email@example.com We hope to see you there!
Annual General Meeting of Wateringbury WI will be held on 10 May, during which we will have our usual business meeting and
will vote for and confirm our officers and committee members for the coming
year. Following the business meeting we
will be having a Cream Tea and holding a Silent Auction.
14 June, Andy Thomas is returning to give another of his talks ‘Unexplained
Mysteries’, a talk which will no doubt provide a few unexpected surprises. The
competition is an ‘Unusual Object’, and books and items on the trading table
will be available to buy during the social time following Andy’s talk. Visitors very welcome.
April speaker, Pat Mortlock, told us about the mothers and wives who were the
‘Supporters’ of the Kings of the early Tudor period, which included Margaret
Beaufort and Catherine Parr. Support from the ladies was vital for the early
Tudor Kings, who often came to the throne at a very young age and needed advice
and help to ensure royal etiquette was followed and a suitable marriage was
made, hopefully to produce a male heir.
Pat’s talk was both humorous and interesting and gave us an idea of what
happened behind the scenes during Tudor times.
Our competition of ‘an example of lace’ was won by Sandy Parker, who had
brought along a fan and book containing lace items made by her mother.
TESTON AND WATERINGBURY PRE SCHOOL
continue with our termly theme talking about the different seasons with the
children, where they will be making butterfly pictures and making a hungry
caterpillar display to decorate our wall in the hall. We will be welcoming our very own hungry
caterpillars to enable the children to see them grow into beautiful butterflies
before releasing them into our garden. I wonder what names the children will
give them this year!
We will also be inviting our parents
and grandparents in to our café where the children will be able to serve
homemade scones, biscuits and soft drinks and with the money they make they
will be able to buy an ice-cream when Roy’s Ices visits us in week 6.
finally a day to put in your diaries, we will be hosting a quiz night in Teston Village Hall on Friday 11 May at 7pm in aid of
Teston Preschool. All are welcome, £10 per
head including a sausage and chip supper.
To book a table, ideally 6-8 people, please contact Tina Driver on 07805 796353.

Aid, For Dignity, For Equality, For
Justice. Poverty robs people of their
dignity and lets injustice thrive. But
together we have the power to transform lives.
A house-to-house collection is
planned again for this year. So please
be as generous as you can. If you are
able to volunteer to deliver and/or collect envelopes from a street in the
village this would be very helpful. Support and guidance is available for new
volunteers. Please contact Becky Bowie
on 01622 813396 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
FUN WITH FAITH ON SATURDAY 31 MARCH
Rev Nick opened the event and the children were keen to
make a start. Our regular activities are
always a great hit; getting their hands dirty with soil and planting a pansy to
creating their own Easter garden, trying not to get too much icing on their
fingers when decorating their cakes and gingerbread shaped Easter egg.
Our plain cross is now adorned in beautiful colours of
craft materials, different shapes and sizes of flowers. It does look wonderful.
The church always has a calm buzz and excitement around the place and after two
hours of fun the children gathered for some prize giving of chocolate eggs and
sweeties! Parents were greeted with
smiling faces and were quickly ladened with all the morning’s creations.
A huge Thank You to my fantastic band of helpers especially
the helpful young helpers and all who donated chocolate eggs. A Special Thank You to the children for
making the morning so pleasurable. Your
behaviour was impeccable and it was a joy to have you. If you would like to see some photos please
look at the church website. The next
Easter Fun with Faith will be Saturday 20 April 2019. Look forward to seeing you next year.
COFFEEBREAK – Wednesdays 2, 16 and 30 May
go along to the church between 10.30-12.30 and enjoy coffee, delicious
cake and chat. Some also are reviving
their interest in knitting and needlepoint and Eddie is making a rug.
For several years some have been making
poppies, using various methods, which will be used for the Carpet of Poppiesweekendin the Church on 2, 3 and 4 November
to mark the Centenary of the End of the Great War. Save the date!

PRIESTLY PONDERINGS Rev Nick Williams
Vicarage, 2 The Grange, East Malling
I hope and trust that you all had a happy and joyous Easter
and that in the busyness of everyday life you managed to find some time to be
with your family and friends. It was a
pleasure to meet those of you I hadn’t met before at some of the Easter
services that took place across the benefice. It was particularly good to see those who dragged
themselves out of bed to make the dawn service on Easter day, it is a service
that seems to get more popular every year and is always a delight to lead with
its symbolism that stretches back into the early history of the Church.
In church terms however Easter still has a while to go as
strictly speaking it doesn’t finish until the Feast of Pentecost, sometimes
called Whit Sunday, which this year is on 20 May so you still have plenty of
time to enjoy the Easter eggs you may have left over. This year during the period from Ascension Day
(10 May) to Pentecost we will be taking part in the Archbishop of Canterbury’s
‘Thy Kingdom Come’ initiative. In this
Churches throughout the world will pray for the places in which they live and
the people who live there (you can find out more about it at https://www.thykingdomcome.global),
certainly looking around me at the world I can’t think of a better time for
In this benefice there will be special services of morning
and evening prayer held throughout the period so keep a look out for the
posters that will tell you what’s happening where and when. If you can’t join us but have a particular
request for prayer at this time then please email your requests to the parish
office on email@example.com and
I will make sure that your prayer requests are included in the offices as they
In conclusion I hope you will all enjoy the remainder of
Easter and wish you every blessing.
