Come alive Saturday 6th April… two sold out shows at the Sinden Theatre, eight groups of performers including over 200 children dancing and singing. Around £5000 raised for charity. Well done to Hannah Carter for making Tenterden “Come Alive” a sell-out performance for the 2nd year running.


30th May. Adrian and Debbie from Tenterden museum welcomed Tenterden Rotarians and friends to an evening reception. One of the highlights of the evening was the opportunity to see local Historian Jack Gillet's collection of newspaper cuttings dating back to the beginning of the club in 1949. The cuttings have been scanned and digitised to create an enduring record that can be viewed by anyone visiting the museum.

As it was a pleasant evening it seemed a good idea to have a group photograph outside by the museum entrance. Perhaps it will feature in a future historians presentation in another seventy years.
