Not too much on this weekend as we gather ourselves for a 'big one ' next. Remember that your Club opens at 6pm tonight.  Come in for an early evening drink and 'take the mickey' out of your President who will be wearing something special!  Treasure Chest  later with £199 up for grabs if you choose the right key out of 9 having won the draw. That is when you hope not too many of your friends are there to take advantage of your good fortune and drink your health!

So to next weekend.  Autumn Festival, Scarecrows, Nostalgia, Harvest Festival and Static bike Racing all rolled together!    Saturday (6th) is a  big day for Nostalgia in your Club and out on the Green.  Hop picking theme with Hop bins and bines.  News of the Hop Pickers Line Heritage Trail and simply loads of stuff from bygone days.  Teas served in our Club and the bar will be open.

On the Green Scarecrows everywhere!  Bring yours along to the Green by 9am- judging in various categories this year. Unusual animals to pat and pet. Wandering Minstrels.  BBQ with 'hop pickers sausages. A 'scarecrow trail' that will take you on a hunt for knowledge around Sprivers.  YES a hive of interesting activity for you and your family.
That all finishes around 5 pm when your Club will be cleared and made ready for an evening of Static Bike Racing.  Great fun to watch  and even better to join in!!   This is a fund raiser for the Kindergarten and is crazy.  Good way to spend an evening with your friends, having a drink, relaxing until someone get you to take part !!   Then the laughter will increase!!! 

On Sunday the fun continues!   On the Green and around Sprivers but it is also Harvest Festival when we give thanks for our food and farmers.

For those fit to do it -a walk to St Margaret's , through lovely orchards and scenery,to our wonderful old church  (the Tower will be open!!- have you seen the view?) Walk starts at 9.30 am on the Green.   You arrive at our church , the bells will be ringing to welcome you and coffee and cakes will await you even if you come by car.  A short Harvest Service with the Village Choir to helping you sing .  Then you can walk or drive back to the Green not being able to resist a well earned drink in your Club and telling all how much you enjoyed the walk.  (make sure the person you are talking to is not a scarecrow!)

We have a new Doctor!   Dr Emma Brooks will be joining the team at our surgery on 2nd October to enhance her career and practice on the folk of Horsmonden.  Big welcome to her and our best wishes.  We hope we don't have to bother her too much but if we do she will sort us out!

Good news for Rugby fans.  We will be screening the 'Autumn Internationals 'at your Club.  Watch out for dates and times.

This coming Thursday the Historical Society meet at your Club at 8pm (bar open from 7.15)   A speaker of real quality and a different view of the war  in -The Kaisers War.  All welcome , so come along and get a comfortable seat for an interesting evening.

Happy scarecrow making!!!
