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.

Christmas update

Don't forget to bring yourselves and your families to tomorrow's Christingle Service and Mini Christmas Fayre.

The service starts at 10am, with the traditional Church of England Childrens' Society Christingles,  followed by coffee or tea as usual. 

At 11,15 (ish), to about 1.30. the Mini Christmas Fayre will be open, where there will be mulled wine, mince pies, Christmas gifts, a Hand Made in Seal stall, a raffle of a Christmas hamper, beautiful wooden gifts, cake and sweet stall, and maybe 🎅 could make an appearance! The Seal Allotment Society and Seal Tiddlers will also have a stall.

Hope to see you there! The Carol Service takes place next Sunday - 17th December at 6.30pm, where wine and nibbles will be served after.

Before I finish, I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to JD O'Brien and his team, who managed to get the Christmas lights up and illuminating our village . We don't have a final figure yet, as some pledges of donations have still not come in, but also, a massive thanks to all of you who have contributed in any way - financially or otherwise, to this. It was great to see so many people outside the village shops enjoying the mulled wine from Birch's, and supporting our local businesses!  It is hoped that there will be a great SUMMER PARTY 🍹🍸🍺🍾🍭🍮🍰 for the whole village in 2018, so watch this space! As soon as all the donations are in, we will be letting you all know exactly how much you have raised!

In the meantime, for those that are unable to come along tomorrow or next Sunday, have a very Happy, Peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Marion. (on behalf of Know Your Neighbours).
