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.

Meanwhile, the Know Your Neighbours/Seal Church Friday Group (still not named), goes from strength to strength. The group meets in Seal Church Hall every Friday morning between 10am and midday, for coffee, tea, crafts, chats, darts, cards, and anything else (within reason) you wish. There have also been a few outings to local places of interest, and the coast during the summer. All adults are welcome ( we would love to include children, but simply do not have the space), male, female, young, and not so young. Please let us know if you need more information, or just turn up any Friday morning!


Also, should you be aware of anybody who has recently moved into the village, and may be interested in joining this email circular information, please ask them to email me or call 01732 763727 to leave their email details.
