Welcome to Autumn 2018

Welcome to our Autumn 2018 Issue

You only have to look around you to see that Kent is an ancient county with a history of traditional crafts. Many of these are still practised today by skilled local people with a love of what they do and impressive portfolios of experience, and in this edition of Conservation News we meet some of them.

There’s Mark Padfield, a thatcher who simply loves working outdoors and producing something creative. Then there’s Keith Cleal, an upholsterer for more than 50 years who has no plans to retire yet!

Autumn harvest is upon us, and it’s a time of year to be thinking about food especially with Christmas on the horizon. We’re looking at what we can grow ourselves, and where to go to buy the very best local produce.

Congratulations to our two winners from the summer edition of Conservation News. Sandra Goodwin from Boughton under Blean won the Afternoon Tea at Bramble Cottage book, and Natasha Epps from Barham won Afternoon Tea for two at Frasers in Egerton.
