Com­mu­nity spirit shines through

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

THE Wye Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion held its an­nual Christ­mas street party on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 5. The event raised just over £2,000 which is the sum needed to pro­vide Christ­mas lights for our vil­lage and an­other Christ­mas street party next year. De­spite the down­pour peo­ple were not put off and in true Bri­tish and Wye spirit car­ried on re­gard­less. It is th­ese peo­ple we would like to thank for their sup­port to­gether with the po­lice and St John who cover our event ev­ery year. Thanks must also go to the two of­fi­cers at Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil who ev­ery year help us with the road clo­sure and street col­lect­ing li­cence etc. Th­ese two ladies couldn’t be more help­ful in as­sist­ing us to make our event pos­si­ble. Ann Suther­land, Chair­man, Wye Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion.
