Welcome to our Summer Newsletter and to all new residents of Badgers Mount.
At our AGM on 10th May the existing Committee was re-elected together with two
new members who were warmly welcomed – Eric Raven and Brian Modlock both from
the Orpington By-Pass.
The Barn Dance held in April was thoroughly enjoyed by those who attended and
some have asked if we could run another of these in the not too distant future.
MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING
On THURSDAY, 27TH SEPTEMBER, the regular coffee morning will again be extended
form 10am to 12.30pm to take part in the Macmillan Cancer Support ‘Worlds
Largest Coffee Morning’ in the Memorial Hall. As last year, there will be stalls
selling cakes, produce, bric-a-brac etc. All contributions of items for sale
will be welcome, either before the day to the normal coffee mornings or to
Gordon Plumb (534279), or bring them along on the day. Everyone is invited to
support this worthy cause, and we hope we can improve on last year’s donation of
OLD TIME MUSIC HALL EVENING
By popular request we are holding another Old Time Music Hall Evening. We have
booked Marie Kelly again for SATURDAY, 13TH OCTOBER 2007 starting at 7.30 p.m.
Tickets (including buffet) will cost £5 each, but please bring own drinks and
glasses. Tickets will be available at the Thursday Coffee Mornings or from
Gordon Plumb (534279). All ages are welcome to attend, please feel free to
invite your friends and family.
NEW YEARS EVE PARTY
Although a little in advance, the Hall has been booked for the annual New Year
celebration on 3lst December 2007 – please put this event on your calendar so
you don’t miss out!
The only significant recent planning application has been by Asprey Homes Ltd
for 8 B1 industrial units (offices) on the land at the rear of Fox’s Garage, Old
London Road. If approved, this could provide some local employment and maintain
the business use of the site. While the design does not appear to be too
unreasonable for a small office block, it is higher than adjacent houses. Our
main concern, which has been raised with Sevenoaks District Council, is that car
parking appears to be inadequate.
PARENTS & TODDLERS GROUP
We were recently asked by a resident whether there was a local group for parents
& babies/toddlers to meet. Unfortunately, there is not in Badgers Mount but a
new group will be starting on Monday mornings (term time only) from 10th
September at Halstead Community Primary School, Otford Lane, Halstead between
9.30 and 11.30 am. All parents, carers, babies & toddlers are welcome – for
further details please contact Tina Ballard on 01689 817030.
