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.

Childsbridge Lane Road Safety Campaign



A group of local residents has organised a petition asking for measures to be taken to make the stretch of road between Seal and Kemsing safer for motorist, pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
They are asking for the following ideas to be considered:
Reduce the speed limit from 60mph to 40mph.
Create a “priority to oncoming traffic layout at the Childsbridge Lane Railway Bridge.
Erect barriers to protect a pedestrian walkway on the southbound side of the road to make the crossing safe for non-vehicular road users.

If you would like to sign the petition  you can find it online here.

The organisers of the petition are also asking for any experiences you have of problems on this stretch of roads. Any stories they can gather to support their case will help, so if you have ever had a near miss (or an actual accident) on Childsbridge Lane please let them know. You can email on reducespeed.childsbridgelane@gmail.com .
