The price includes a substantial ploughman's supper. Participants should supply their own drinks. We are inviting local organisations to field teams of up to eight, but individuals are also welcome to make up teams on the night. We very much hope that you will consider organising a team and joining us for what should be an enjoyable and worthwhile evening. We would also be grateful if you could pass on the information to anyone who might be interested in coming along..

Lady Mayoress of Canterbury's Charity Cycle. 7th/8thMay.

The Charity cycle ride from Canterbury to their twinned town of Rheims is taking place on 7/8th of May. The cyclists are stopping overnight in Aire on 7th.  The twinning association has been instrumental in suggesting a Civic reception be organised. This will take place in the Town Hall at around 1800hrs.  It might be possible to arrange for cyclists from Sturry and from Aire to join in part of the route. If you are interested in going over to lend your support, you can get further details from our Chairman, Joe Gunn on 01227 712361




 We have been invited to visit Aire this year on the weekend of 17th/18th of September when the town will be opening its historic monuments and celebrating its heritage. The information we have at the moment is that there is to be an Agricultural Show Greyhound Racing on the Sunday. It has been suggested that it would be a good opportunity to make a weekend of it by stopping overnight on the Saturday. Our friends in Aire will let us know about accommodation. It will be useful to have some idea of how many people would like to take up this offer, so could you  please return the slip below to Graham Kenmir, 47 Sweechgate, Broad Oak, Canterbury , CT2 0QY.
