What is "Know Your Neighbours"?

"Know Your Neighbours" is a grass-roots community group in Seal, near Sevenoaks in Kent. The group is made up of anyone in the village who wants to get involved - individuals, clubs and societies, businesses, church and schools, parish council,and many others.
We organise local events through the year - fetes, street parties, Christmas events etc. - and we hold social gatherings, just so that people can get to "know their neighbours". There's no "committee" - anyone who turns up for meetings is welcome to help in any way they are able.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE, OR BE ADDED TO THE EMAIL LIST, contact Marion Gilchrist , who coordinates the group, or Anne Le Bas, who maintains this blog.

Planning meeting notes Nov 10

The notes from the Know Your Neighbours planning meeting last night (Thursday 10th Nov) can be found by clicking on the link in the right hand sidebar, under the "Pages" heading.


Planning for the Christmas Village event on Friday Dec 2 is well underway, starting with Seal School Christmas fair from 3.30pm, followed by a procession up to the Five Bells pub at about 5.30 and carol singing there. We will then go onto the church at about 6pm for a couple more carols, and there will be stalls, activities, a BBQ and bar, and a special, red-coated visitor in the tower... We will pack up at 9 pm, so that those coming home from work can join us.

If you can give this any publicity, there is a poster available to download here.
