The Farleighs WI Choir
On Saturday 1st February The Farleighs WI choir sang in the first round of
a competition to find the WI Choir of the Century. The WI nationally will be
100 years old in 2015. The winning choir will sing in the Albert Hall at the AGM.
They were competing against 3 other choirs from West Kent. They sang three
songs, an Italian Folk song (in english) Mozarts Ave Verum (in latin) and a
new song Butterfly written by Alan and Catherine Simmons. It was originally
written for children, but suits an all female choir very well.
They had rehearsed hard, the choir mistress Lynn Seeley is a perfectionist,
but the hard work paid off. They were selected by a panel of professional
musicians to go forward to the next round. They will be representing West
Kent in the South East regional competition in Dorking in September.
Welcome to a big, time consuming wordsearch! There are well over a hundred words to find, so just work away at it as and when you find the time. Usual rules; words run left to right, up and down and diagonally.

And a Happy Christmas to all of you...

Look forward to some more!
As promised, a follow up to my article on the trees of West Farleigh is a work in progress. I had the honour to host the judge for the annual competition and feel we have done well. The results won't be known until October or even later, but I'll give you an idea of what we have to offer.

Peter Callway was instituted and inducted as the new Rector of our Benefice on Friday 7th June, and his wife Alison was licenced as a reader in the Benefice at the same time. About 200 people came along to this service and there was a fine reception afterwards.
I have posted some photographs of the service in "Recent Images" (many thanks to Kath Cooper) on this website.

PS. Institution means "the admission by the Bishop..into the spiritual oversight and care of a Parish.." while Induction means "the admission by the Archdeacon...into the possession of the church building, churchyard and parsonage." The Bishop in this case is Bishop James of Rochester and the Archdeacon is the Venerable Clive Mansell, Archdeacon of Tonbridge.
It could be a question in Tim Hill's Harvest Supper Quiz!

I am delighted to inform parents with children in need of burning up some energy that the playground extension on the village green is open for business. The Good Intent will be happy to entertain you while the children play!
The Adventure Trail comprises many different challenges for boys and girls of all ages, well not for babies, actually, but toddlers and upwards. It's almost as good as Thorpe Park - and it's free and on your doorstep.
Come and play!
There will be no buses from Tuesday 2nd April, for up to 5 days.
This due to local road closures.
Nu-Venture express their regret at not being able to serve West Farleigh.
