Riverhead

LATEST

St Mary’s Church Riverhead has for many years worked in partnership with the United Reformed Church (URC), Sevenoaks to provide the Littlecourt Lunch Club which meets on a Tuesday lunchtime at the Kippington URC Hall.

Thank you to all who have been assisting the Christmas Elves by hanging baubles and decorations on some of the trees in the Parkland over Christmas.

Do you know a resident or group from Riverhead Parish who has made a difference in the community and deserves an award? Nominations are now open for the Kent Association of Local Councils (KALC) Community Awards Scheme.

This Sunday (15 December) there will be a Nativity Service at St Mary’s Church at 9.30am when the Sunday Club children will tell the Christmas Story.

St Mary’s Church will again be holding its popular Christmas Tree Festival over the weekend of 7 & 8 December.

This year the ceremony will be held around the Riverhead Christmas tree in the courtyard at the Village Hall, rather than in the area under The Heights. Meet outside the village hall at 5.45pm for the countdown to 6pm.

There was a wonderful turnout of people for the Remembrance service on Sunday 10 November at the war memorial in the grounds of the village hall.

This year the ceremony for the switching on of the village lights will be held by the Christmas tree in the courtyard at the Village Hall, rather than in the area under The Heights. Meet outside the village hall at 5.45pm on Thursday, 28 November.

Congratulations to Priti Patel, the manager of Riverhead Londis in White Hart Parade, for raising £740 at her Breast Cancer Awareness event.

The hefty combination padlock on the big gate at the St Mary’s Drive entrance to the Riverhead Parkland was found smashed to pieces on the morning of Friday 11 October.
