Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Commercial -

THE Wye Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion Christ­mas street party raised more than £2,000 on Fri­day, mean­ing there is enough money for an­other party next year. Fire fight­ers pro­vided an en­gine at the lower end of Church Street, while stall­hold­ers in­cluded Amnesty In­ter­na­tional, Wye Foot­path So­ci­ety, Wye Arts and Wye His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. Fa­ther Christ­mas put in an ap­pear­ance and there was also a tombola, bot­tle stall and a bar­be­cue. Wye Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Ann Suther­land said: “We’re amazed and grate­ful that when the heav­ens opened and the rain poured down peo­ple didn’t scurry off. “In both true Bri­tish and Wye spirit they car­ried on as if it was a mid­sum­mer’s day.”
