Ride & Stride Garden Party – 2014

The Friends of Kent Churches Ride & Stride Garden Party was held at Mere House, Mereworth on a lovely warm sunny day by kind permission of Andrew and Tessa Wells on 16th July.  Over 150 people attended and the special guest was the Right Revd Trevor Willmott, Bishop of Dover who kindly presented awards and talked to the representative supporters of the R & S from the parishes.  The guests enjoyed music from the East Peckham Brass band and tucked in to a lovely tea which everyone helped to supply.  It is only due to the continued support that the amazing sum of over £130,000 is raised each year for the maintenance of our lovely churches in Kent.
