Sunshine brings out art lovers in aid of the Hollingbourne Meadows Trust.

Today’s sunshine brought out art lovers for the Hollingbourne Outdoor Art Fair Festival on Hollingbourne Meadows Trust land at the rear of Tilefields in Eyhorne Street. The event was organised by Lynn and Glenn Bryan.

Pictured below are some of the people at the event which was held in the field adjoining the Trust land where 100 hawthorn trees are to be planted later this year to mark the centenary of the end of WW1, Yesterday the site for the trees was marked out and the official launch will be on the afternoon of 11th November. It is also hoped that the venture will raise funds for Royal British Legion. Hollingbourne residents are invited to sponsor a tree in memory of a relative who died in WW1 at a price of £295 and a number have been sold already.

Other events are planned around the Remembrance Day weekend on Sunday 11th November including a church service at 9.30am in All Saints’ Church following by the laying of wreaths on the Hollingbourne war memorial next to the School and a revue in aid the Meadows Trust scheme to plant the 100 trees on preceding nights in the Village Hall.
