SINCE the vil­lage of High Halden lost its last vil­lage shop res­i­dents have been forced to travel to Ten­ter­den, Ash­ford or one of the vil­lages. Now a teenager from Ash­ford has an­swered the call for lo­cal shop­ping by launch­ing a weekly farm­ers’ mar­ket in the vil­lage’s Memo­rial hall. Adam Spicer, 19, from Ken­ning­ton, started on Tues­day and will be back ev­ery week be­tween 2.30pm and 4.30pm – helped by a team in­clud­ing his mother Jane – of­fer­ing fresh fruit and veg­eta­bles and a wide se­lec­tion of jams, pick­les and chut­ney and other items from lo­cal sup­pli­ers. He saw the need to serve the com­mu­nity and de­cided to ex­pand his ser­vices as he al­ready runs a veg­etable box de­liv­ery busi­ness.
