North Downs Way Pilgrims Festival

Wye, 24th-30th September. Summer isn’t quite over yet - join us for a week-long festival of events in Wye, 24-30th September 2018 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the launch of the North Downs Way National Trail. The North Downs Way Pilgrims Festival brings together the community to celebrate nature, mindfulness, heritage, literature, music, food, and all things relating to the trail’s pilgrim heritage. It promises to be a fantastic event for anyone wishing to be close to nature and experience local heritage and produce, or those who just want to take time out of busy lives to clear the head and the heart.

Urgent

Paid work, part time or full time for footpath clearance:July to October 2018.

Owing to a contractor (based in Bedford!) not being able to fulfill their contact with KCC, KCC has asked a local contractor, Kevin Lamb, (based in Elham) to undertake significantly more footpath clearance work than he was originally assigned to do. It is in the interest of Ramblers that these footpaths are cleared. Because of this problem there is a danger numerous footpaths will not be cleared and footpaths will become impassable. As a result, the local contractor, Kevin Lamb, now needs additional help for footpath clearance. He has one other experienced worker. This work is temporary (between July and October), and can be part time or full time. Kevin has been undertaking footpath clearance work for KCC for 15 years and is well known to me. He has all necessary equipment, protective clothing etc. Any person interested would be fully trained beforehand. If you are interested, or know of someone who would be interested, could I ask you/they to contact Kevin please? He will then explain more, payment etc. and you/they could explain what time you/they would be available. His contact details are Email: lamb.k@btinternet.com Mobile: 07961029344 Landline: 01303 840215: John Grace
