Literacy Box Project
Following an assembly that Sue Hoey and Rev Tracey Bateson made at Ospringe Primary School about Literacy Boxes the children were keen to respond and link with a school in Zambia. Children wrote stories and sent drawings about their lives in Faversham and hope that the children in the Zambian school will be able to reply when the literacy box arrives in Zambia in December. Faversham Rotary Club donated £650 for 2 literacy boxes, in part raised from a wine tasting evening delivered with great charm by Master of Wine Clive Barlow. Ospringe Primary School raised a further sum from the frund raising efforts of the children, for which Ian Parker, the Chair of Literacy Boxes, sent this certificate.

Faversham Nautical Festival 23rd - 24th July
This year’s Festival was bigger and better than ever, helped by glorious warm sunshine on both days which encouraged large numbers of people to visit Faversham Creek.
The event was sponsored by Faversham Rotary Club, in association with the Brents Community Association and Faversham Creek Trust.
There were many beautiful traditional vessels moored in the upper regions of the Creek, including Thames sailing barges, Dutch barges, tugs, smacks and other smaller boats. Several vessels were “dressed overall” which added lots of colour to the scene.
On Town Quay there were exhibitions and information stalls, a beer tent and barbecue, and the music stage where live music was played on both days.
On the Front Brents, on the opposite side of the Creek, there were several stalls where local artists displayed and sold their work. A variety of food and drink stalls were also set up on the green, there was a bouncy castle for the children, and ice creams of course.
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this year’s Nautical Festival such a success.
Visit from Helen Whately MP
Our guest speaker at last night's meeting (1st August) was the MP for Faversham and Mid-Kent, Helen Whately. The evening was very well attended with member's partners joining us. Helen became an MP at the last General Election and entertained us with her experiences as a new Member of Parliament and then took questions from the audience.
