Farmers’ Market

This weekend, the farmers’ market will be up by the cafe.

The stalls support the friends’ group, their rent helps fund small projects including the mud kitchen, wildflower seeds, bird seed, tools etc.

Whitegates Farm bring eggs, fruit, vegetables, apple juices…and hopefully some Kent apples, Marsh Meat have a selection of meats and we are hoping the preserves will be back after their summer break.

Leonard Manasseh at Hilly Fields

We are always interested to see photographs from Hilly Fields over the years, but this find on the internet last night is fantastic.

Currently condemned by the council, the bowls pavilion was actually designed by one of the leading British Architects of the 1960s, Leonard Manasseh RA.
