THE VILLAGE FETE - 4 JUNE 2017
Thank you to everyone who contributed in so many ways to make our fete
such a splendid village occasion. We are
grateful to the Parish Council who have given financial support over the last
few years. However due to financial
constraints they are unable to make such a contribution in future years. It was therefore imperative over the last 2
years to build up a surplus of funds to enable the set-up costs for 2018 to be
met from Fete Committee funds. We are
therefore deeply indebted to our sponsors for their help.
We had a record 36 stalls this year representing many local
organisations and small businesses. All
reported doing a brisk trade. To give a
few examples - 185 jars of jam and
chutney were sold by Sheena and Gordon, Rostrum’s White Elephant stall raised
£200 for the school and church building appeals, The WI members sold out of
their delicious home-made cakes and raised £91, WATCH youth club’s toy stall
made £100 and Knitters and Crafters funds were boosted by £75. Vicki of Tidy Tailz Dog Grooming enjoyed
meeting dog owners and giving hints and
tips as well as selling her handmade dog collars, leads and snacks.
The Scouts did brisk business as did the
Cricket Club’s burgers stall and of
course Ellinor’s Ices, The Friends of Wateringbury Church Pimms Tent (which
raised £300), Redhill Farm Winery and The North Pole Beer Tent all did a brisk
The Not Too
Serious Dog Show had a record 41 entries (16 more than last year). Many thanks to our young judges who chose: Cutest
Dog: Winner Phil with Bella, runner up Maria
with Pepper Waggiest
Tail: Winner Isobel with Buster, runner up
Paula with George. Best
Trick: Winner Sarah with Pip, runner up Wendy
with Ted. Puppy
Obedience: Winner Edward with Guinness, runner up Damien
Winner Gemma with Oakley, runner up Kevin with Chester.
Thanks to all competitors and
to the Sponsors Pets Love Us from Medway Wharf Marine, Wateringbury.
The Raffle, thanks to so many generous sponsors, sold over 1000 tickets.
Kings Hill Rock Choir and Les Blackburn’s musical entertainment were
very popular; we hope they will come again in 2018.
The success of the day was due in no small part to careful planning led
by Mike Witts and to Harry Vidler and many others for their tireless help on
Our annual village fete has been nicknamed ‘the friendly fete’ by many
of our stall-holders and visitors – the fete committee hope you agree and look
forward to seeing you on Sunday 3 June
Wateringbury Village Fete Committee
WATERINGBURY SPORTS AND RECREATION ASSOCIATIONRegistered Charity 281212
The Sports Pavilion is 25 years old on 12 July and since its opening has
been used by thousands of children and adults
A campaign was started on 19 December 1989 by the
Wateringbury Fields Association, to replace the appalling dilapidated
portakabins with a purpose built sports pavilion at a cost of £28,500. Grants
of £6,000 were obtained from Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council and the
Sports Council, together with a loan of £6,000 from the Sports Council. Numerous fund raising activities were carried
out over the next two years, and the new Sports Pavilion, built by John Childs &
Associates, was officially opened on Sunday 12 July 1992.
The Fields Association still faced the onerous task
of repaying the £6,000 loan to the Sports Council, plus raising support to
provide an electricity supply, durable multi-purpose flooring, showers and hot
water. With the support of Seeboard and
an anonymous benefactor, the electricity supply was connected during March 1995
at a cost of £2,500. Supported by Marley
and the Parish Council the durable heavy duty flooring was completed in September
1995 at a cost of £1,000. With a grant
from Maidstone Lions Club the showers and hot water were installed in June 1996
at a cost of £2,000.
The final repayment
of the loan to the Sports Council was made on 15 May 1997.
The terrorist attack on London Bridge on 7 June
shocked and saddened us all.
Wateringbury has strong links with London Bridge. The first stone on the City side of the then
new London Bridge (now in the USA) was laid by the Right Hon Matthias Prime
Lucas, Lord Mayor of London on the 12th March 1828.
Lucas lived for many years in Wateringbury Place. The old London Bridge was designed by John
Rennie a famous civil engineer who was responsible for many major national
projects (including Waterloo and Southwark Bridges) of the period. Nearby to Wateringbury, John Rennie also
constructed Tutsham Oil Mill for Charles Middleton, First Baron Barham of
Barham Court, Teston. his son Capt George Lucas Rennie RA went on to marry
Caroline Lucas, Matthias' daughter.
FOOTBALL CLUB Calling parents of all Year 1s and 2s who will be moving into Year 2 and 3 next year.

familiar with develop in terms of their skills and confidence, so why not pay a
visit. We are all very proud of what
we’ve achieved with the club certainly going from strength to strength.
philosophy is to not plunge our children into competitive football too early
and as such we passionately believe this has paid dividends in developing early
skills and is undoubtedly keenly supported by parents
Hope to see you
and please drop me a line if you are interested
Karl Smith, Academy Coach
Next Walks: 2 July and 6 August meet at the village hall at 2:30pm for local walks.
The June walk, held on the 11th because
of the village fete, was well attended, we were blessed with a sunny day.
I changed the Livesey Street walk due to very muddy conditions on
the lane from the North Pole. So instead
we did a river walk along the south bank through Waregrave’s Wood and Tutsham
Farm then returned along the north bank from Teston. This is an excellent easy 3½ mile walk at any
time of the year.
You are invited
to Kent Police FREE Open Day on Sunday 2 July 2017,
10am-4pm at Kent Police College, Coverdale Avenue ME15 9DW for a fun
day for all ages.

order and roads policing displays. See
how we work with other emergency services at the scene of a crash.
· Check out the latest job opportunities
to see if a career in policing is for you. Meet
the National Police Air Service team and take a look inside their

taken and much more!
WATERINGBURY WOMEN’S INSTITUTE
booked for 13 July is Ken Usher, from ‘CROP’ (Citizen’s Rights for Older
People), who will be telling us how Crop can possibly help us with problems or
issues that we may be experiencing.
Ken’s talk will be followed by a Beetle Drive, and the monthly competition
is an “Insect Brooch”.
Due to the recently
held elections and the village hall being used as a polling station we moved
our meeting to 15 June, unfortunately the booked speaker was not available on
that date so we held a ‘Games Afternoon’ instead. Following the normal WI business, led by our
new President Joan Wilson, we started the games with a session of “Hoy Bingo”,
then settled down to play the various board games provided by the
committee. The afternoon ended with our
usual tea and cakes and the calling of the raffle, everyone agreed that the
change to the programme had produced a very enjoyable afternoon.

WAR NEWS, JULY/AUGUST 1917
July 17 The Royal family changes its name from
Saxe-Coburg to Windsor.
July 31: 3rd Ypres campaign
(Passchendale) starts on Western Front.
August 16 Second major assault - 3rd Ypres campaign
The village suffered three war deaths in
July/August, 1917: James Wells, Robert Ralph and Lewis Smith. James came from
Canon Lane, Robert from near the North Pole and Lewis from Bow Road. They all came from large families: both
James’s and Robert’s mothers had 11 children and Lewis’s mother a mere 8.
James and Robert had followed the same
occupations as their fathers, James as “an ordinary agricultural labourer”
(before he entered the army as a professional soldier) and Robert working in a
brewery. Lewis’s father was a coachman,
but Lewis became a domestic gardener - Wateringbury in the 1911 census had a
rather large number of gardeners. All
three had attended Wateringbury School.
James features in the school log as being punished for cheating and, on another
occasion, bad language. Robert won a
K.E.C. medal with which he was presented at the Empire Day celebrations of
1906. Robert was aged 24, James 29 and Lewis 31 when they died. All were unmarried.
enlisted before the war and was a professional soldier. We do not know when Robert or Lewis enlisted. They were either volunteers or
conscripts. Both Robert and Lewis had
advanced in rank to lance-corporal by the time they died, but James was still a
private after at least 6 years’ service. James was in the 2nd Battalion
Royal West Kent regiment, which had been located in Iraq since early 1915. Britain captured Baghdad in March 1917. James’ battalion were not involved in its
capture but were moved in June to Baghdad from Nasiriyah some 225 miles away. He died of heat stroke in July 1917 and is
buried in the North Gate War Cemetery, Baghdad.
and Lewis were both killed on the Western Front in Belgium in what is known as
the 3rd Ypres campaign, which ended with the capture, in November
1917, of the village of Passchendale.
Both were in northern regiments - Robert in the King’s Own Yorkshire
Light Infantry and Lewis in the Northumberland Fusiliers. Robert died in mid-July during the
bombardment preceding the initial main assault of the campaign on 31st
July. Lewis died mid-August on the day
of the second major assault.
On the home front, tragedy struck in
Vicarage Cottages (on the Tonbridge Road near the White House) when the infant
son of William Cowlard, who had been killed on the Somme a year earlier, died
in a fire at home. His mother was out at work at the Leney brewery and the
child had been left in the care of his grandmother.
Owen English of Manor Farm was appointed as
a farmer’s representative on a government committee in Maidstone to consider
the implications of demobilisation at the end of the war. Although the U.S. was now in the war this
seems rather premature planning.
war did not affect all aspects of village life.
Much discussion took place within the church community about whether the
choir should sit in the chancel or not.
The vicar decided they should definitely not sit there. The choir enjoyed a “treat” in July, a day’s
outing by train to Folkestone. The
journey time from Wateringbury to Folkestone and the return were similar to
today’s times, despite the railway during WW1 giving priority to military
air raids and food continued as the major preoccupations for most in the
village. Daylight air raids by German Gotha heavy bombers were regularly
taking place not just on London, but randomly elsewhere as well, due to poor
navigation. Wateringbury was not bombed in WW1, but the
girls’ school log records in July air raid drills being practised and the
infants’ school log, the same month, records admitting two boys from London,
who had come to the country to escape air raids.
half of Britain’s sugar had, before the war, been imported from Europe. In 1917 it was only subject to voluntary
limitations, but in January 1918 became the first food item to be officially
rationed. A special allocation of sugar
was given to people who made jam from home-grown fruit, an important concession
in a fruit growing area like Wateringbury.
Wateringbury secured a village allocation of 18cwt. which was
distributed in July to 120 applicants from the village, in quantities from 5 to
30 lb. each, strictly for jam making. Terry Bird

Teston and Wateringbury pre-School
t’s near the end of our school year and we are all very
sad to have to say goodbye to our 20 children who leave us to go to big
school. It has been lovely meeting
teachers from the 7 different schools we are feeding into this year. It’s always a sad occasion when we say
goodbye to the children and their families.
We care and nurture these children for the time they are with us and it
is always an emotional time for the staff but we wish them all the very best
for their future education.
Again to help with the transitioning
into school we have some P.E. sessions arranged for this term. It helps the school leavers become more
independent by changing in and out of their P.E kits.
Our annual sports day will be on the Teston Village Green on Friday 14 July. All parents/carers and families welcome but
beware there is always a mums’ race followed by a dads’ race, which seems to
get more competitive each year! After
the races there will be a picnic, raffle and of course our popular ice cream
man will be paying us a visit.
As we are near the end of our school
year we must offer our thanks to the village hall committee for all their
support this year, the hall and the well kept outside area is amazing and the
children love playing in the garden.
We would also like to thank Teston
Farm shop, who support us throughout the year by supplying the very best
locally produced fresh fruit for our children’s snack time.
We wish you all a lovely summer
holiday and look forward to our intake of 17 new little ones come September. Tina Driver (07805 796353)

PRIESTLY PONDERINGS Rev Nick Williams
Vicarage, 2 The Grange, East Malling firstname.lastname@example.org
and Sisters in Christ
In the last issue I wrote about the initiative of the
Archbishops of Canterbury and York called ‘Your Kingdom come’. You may recall
it was about prayer for the whole of our country. All three of the Churches in
the benefice together with all of the Churches in the Malling Deanery took part
with many prayer events being held throughout the 10 days between Ascension Day
and the Day of Pentecost.
Whilst all three Churches regularly pray for the
communities in which we live as part of their normal Sunday and weekday
observances, groups of Christians in the three parishes that make up the
benefice of East Malling, Wateringbury and Teston have decided to continue some
of the prayer events that started during the Archbishops’ initiative. So we will be continuing our programme of prayer
walking in all three parishes. You will continue to see small groups of people
walking our streets and stopping to regularly pray for God’s blessing on the people
that live and work there; we are also being joined by our brothers and sisters
from other denominations.
Prayer for our
streets is also continuing in all three parishes and if you would like to join
in praying for the street in which you live then please get in touch and join
in with what’s going on.
Many of us need prayer at different times in our lives
and whilst it may not normally be ‘our thing’ it is often comforting to know
that others, even if you don’t personally know those people, are praying for
you and with you. If you feel that you are at a point in your life where the
prayers of the church would perhaps help you then please feel free to call into
Church or drop an email or letter to the parish office and we will do our very
best to include you in our prayers.
COFFEE, CHAT AND CRAFT –
Alternate Wednesdays - 10.30-12.30 12 and 26 July, 9 and 23 August
