It seems the whole village enjoyed the 75th Anniversary of the end of the 2nd World War with social distancing still in place. Residents took to their gardens from mid-afternoon and were treated to live music from local singer Debbie Haze.
Kent based ThermoSphere Group have developed an anti-bacterial and anti-viral hand sanitiser which is available to buy now. You can see full details on their website and buy sizes for work/home from an individual bottle up to 5l.

Does anyone remember Victor Lennon who lived in ‘Stockton’ on Roughetts Road in the mid-fifties? Here’s an email we just received from Canada via the Ryarsh website.
64 years ago (1955), I was in Grade 1 Cascades Elementary School, Burnaby, BC Canada. My teacher was Mrs. Buckston, who I believe was from England, though I don’t remember her accent, lol. She connected with a teacher in England, our two schools were bonded; we wrote to a pen-pal, I still have an original ‘hand-written’ letter and ironically his name is:
Victor Frank Lennon, Stockton, Roughetts Road, Ryarsh, West Malling, Kent, England
Researching Google Earth, there are perhaps 8 houses on Roughetts Road, none with numbers but names, seems a common tradition. Perhaps the name changes when the house is bought and sold.
Both us “Victor” have evolved thru some of the most interesting times in the world and in each of our countries, gosh, who ever heard of a microwave, computers, cellphones and jet planes, though I never acquired the taste for Marmite!
Is it possible to let me know, ‘Where is Victor today?’
Thanks, Vic Smith
