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.

Rachael writes:

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.

 

Wye Beauty Sky Dive

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....... 

Robyn Sky Dive

'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!'

MEP Richard Ashworth visits Wye Community Farm

 

MEP MEP 2 MEP 3

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.
