WJCG are working together with the Wye Village Hall Committee to raise funds for the Village Hall project and the Kent Air Ambulance.
For a long time many pet owners in Wye had on their wish list a veterinary practice to operate in Wye. That wish became a reality when Cinq Port Vets opened their clinic in Oxenturn Road and soon became members of The Wye Business Association.
WBA has received the following news from Rachael Stooks RVN PHC . Rachael is the Personal Assistant to Rita Dingwall Practice Manager of Cinq Port Vets.
Centre: Director of Cinq Ports Vets Sharon Marsh who runs the Wye Veterinary Surgery accepted the award on the practice’s behalf.
Cinque Ports Vets were thrilled to be nominated for a Keep It in KentNew Year’s Honours Award at the start of this year.
Keep It In Kent is a campaign run by Steve Newman and Tina Halperin for anyone who believes in the importance of actively supporting local Kent businesses. Our New Year’s Honour was awarded for ‘Services to Veterinary Care in Kent’ and we even made the local paper!
We were kindly invited to attend the awards dinner at The Hythe Imperial Hotel in February where Gold Awards were presented to local businesses following an online vote. Other worthy award winners were King’s Head at Wye, Country Brides of Faversham and Home Cooked By Hannah.
We are very proud of our award and being able to care for you and your pets alongside our sister company Milbourn Equine and look forward to working with ‘Keep It In Kent’ this year.
Robyn Gardener of Wye Beauty www.rtbs.co.uk was inspired last year to take a
sky dive in aid of the Breast Cancer charity. When the great day came she had raised her
target of £395.
However, having braced herself for this daredevil act, her jump was cancelled due
to bad weather. After two more cancellations and a year later Robyn writes.......
'Perfect weather on Sunday 13th March at Headcorn Airfield. The most amazing
experience of my life! I felt very safe and surprisingly not nervous at all!
We jumped at 12,000 feet, did a free fall at 130mph for 30seconds and then
there was 5minutes of gently coming down.
You can talk to each other during the decent.The views were fantastic.
I would do it all again! The good news is that by being postponed
three times, the original £395 target has turned into £1,400 for Breast
Cancer which is brilliant.
Thanks to generous family, friends and clients!'

Local MEP Richard Ashworth
Local MEP Richard Ashworth member of the European Parliament’s agriculture and Budgets committee visited Wye community Farm on Thursday 11 February.
After a visit to the farm’s livestock and around the Brooke agricultural museum mr Ashworth joined a meeting of the farm team looking at developing the micro businesses which are direct spin offs from the farm itself. Della Newman at spinningearth.co.uk presented her fibre and wool business, directly related to the farm and several of the traditional crafts promoted by the farm were on display: felt making, spoon carving, leather work and also acquiring skills for the restoration of a beautiful old bullock cart.
The farm intends to bid for EU funding in the context of the LEADER programme for some of these micro businesses and skills to develop the rural economy and encourage training and apprenticeships in these key areas.
Mr Ashworth noted how many of these skills and businesses dovetail together with the Farm at their hub.

Scott Richardson of The Kings Head has submitted their latest news:
‘We won a gold award at the Keep it In Kent Awards, one of only four awards given out! Woohoo! This was for food, service and supporting Kent business.
Our first awards and we are so proud. As you know we may be Northern but we love everything Kent and support everything local.’
Two Wye businesses have been announced as finalists in The Taste of Kent Awards 2016 . From over 500 Kent nominated businesses, the top three with the most public votes from each category will now enter the final stages, with the hope of becoming winners at a special awards dinner on 3 March 2016.
Congratulations to owner Pauline Hickson and Gary Selling baker, at Wye Bakery who entered their loaf made with flour milled at the nearby Willborough Windmill. Also to be congratulated are Scott Richardson and Mark Lightfoot of the Kings Head who are great advocates of Locally Produced Food.
Good Luck in the finals!
