Helen Grant MP in and around the constituency at local fetes

MP Helen Grant was in and around her rural communities last Saturday as she attended two village fetes.

First stop was Staplehurst where Surrenden Field offered a funfair, live stage, and traditional stalls selling everything from Juicy Cherries to Judo Lessons. Saturday was also Armed Forces Day and Helen made a point of dropping by the Staplehurst stand to show her support and have a chat with Vic Holdaway of the Royal British Legion.

Then it was off to East Farleigh to join festivities at the recreation ground in Vicarage Lane, overlooking the beautiful Medway Valley. Not to be outdone by Staplehurst, live performances were in abundance with the highly rated Blues Brothers Little Brother Band and the Surgeons of Samba drummers, amongst others.

Helen said:

"Our Kentish Village Fetes are an integral part of community life. They bring people together in a unique way whilst also raising funds for important local projects and charities. I thank everyone who volunteers to make sure these truly wonderful British events take place, and everyone who turns up on the day in support"
