 Westerham Society's Beating the Bounds Sunday May 3rd: Please invite your members to join families, groups, friends and visitors and the residents of Westerham in checking our boundaries are still in place! Come along and explore our wonderful countryside, enjoy the views and join the community for burgers, music, entertainment and refreshments on The Green in the afternoon.

 The day is free to enjoy, although donations in the buckets in aid of the town's hanging baskets will be gratefully received. 

 The Westerham Society is keen for others in the community to join in the festivities and we'd like to invite your group to bring a small table, notice, or just a person for our marquee on The Green in the afternoon. The aim is to showcase your group's activities to our visitors, and perhaps sign up new members. If you'd like to join in, please reply and we'd be delighted to reserve a space for you.


Virtual Museum 

We’re trying to save Westerham’s past for future generations. 

This town has an amazing amount and variety of history. We have lots of incredible material on Westerham’s past but sadly there is no chance of having an actual museum. Thanks to people lending us albums and all sorts of memorabilia, which we are copying and returning: the collection is growing all the time. This means that fascinating local family history is being saved for the future. We need to put all this fantastic information on to a virtual museum website. We are putting together a Heritage Lottery Fund application and, within this, giving evidence on local interest.
We'd be very grateful if you'd be kind enough to fill in the Survey, so that we can demonstrate demand, which can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RYDF37N 

 Have you got any memorabilia about Westerham?

As part of a virtual museum initiative, The Westerham Society is inviting anyone who has material of historic interest relating to the town to lend them to our local historian, Bill Curtis. Bill has a solid track-record in conservation and will ensure your personal mementos, photographs and letters are returned intact following high-resolution scanning and photography. He is also progressing an oral history project to digitally record the memories that older residents have of the town between the wars and up to the early 1960s.

Please, if you feel you can help with memorabilia and memories, do contact Bill direct on 01959 56442801959 564428 or through www.pasttimespress.co.uk or lodge your interest with us at ‘Visit Westerham.’

Westerham U3A off to flying start in 2015 -  New groups up and running - - Fascinating speaker line-up - - Programme of visits and events

 Although barely 18 months old, Westerham U3A is now approaching the 250-member mark and has close to 40 study groups up and running. 
Chairman Lyn Snowden says: ‘With Westerham U3A, you can learn or brush up on French, Italian or Spanish, play racketball or go walking.  You can immerse yourself in great paintings and brilliant books, or discover more about your local area, historic houses or the city of London.  Our U3A offers some amazing opportunities for people to keep active – mentally and physically!’
Among the recently formed study groups are Architecture, and Archaeology & History, while some groups – wine appreciation and the book clubs to name but two - have proved so popular they have had to start second - or even third - groups.
Social Secretary Tina Rhoda said: ‘As well as the study groups, we’re lucky enough to have some very interesting speakers lined up.  At our March Open Meeting (Westerham Hall, 2pm 12th  March 2015) Brian Freeland will reveal what really goes on in the theatre in his highly amusing “View from the wings”.  In April we have an insight into the works of one of England’s most enduringly popular writers, Rudyard Kipling, when Geoff Hutchinson talks on his life and verse (2pm 9th April). Non-members are welcome.’
Westerham U3A is attracting not just Westerham-ites, but also members from Oxted, Caterham, Limpsfield, Brasted, Sundridge and beyond.  For more information about becoming a Westerham U3A member, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our meeting in October was a talk giving us a  fascinating glimpse into the Lindisfarne Gospel – from a calligrapher’s point of view, by the renowned local scribe Patricia Lovett. 

On a fine Autumnal day in mid October we made a “Pilgrimage” to the Garrick Club in London - founded in 1831 it houses the largest and most significant collection of British theatrical works of art – featuring many of the major literary, theatrical and artistic personalities of the last two centuries.  Interestingly the Garrick is one of only a few remaining “Gentleman Only” Clubs in London!  A mooch round Covent Garden and some lunch after which we rejoined the coach which brought us back via the Tower of London where we were able to stop and view the wonderful “ Poppies in the Moat”  – very effective and moving.   

Our programme for our 10th Anniversary Season in 2015 is now completed with some interesting lectures and exciting visits  –  come and join our friendly Society -  contact Lynn Worrall on 01959 – 569895.

Westerham Art Group

We had another successful Autumn term, with a varied programme and extra tables being needed for several meetings.

A workshop with Carol Robson was greatly enjoyed as we painted a woodland scene with birch trees. The technique of splashing and flicking with our paint brushes caused some laughter as well as paint-covered hands.  Our life model from the Chinese Restaurant had a beautiful face, which proved a challenge for us, as there were no wrinkle lines to help us 'join the dots'!  We also painted autumn leaves; made fascinating shapes with Quink ink, then turned them into pictures; created patterns based on drawings of kitchen stools; depicted memories from holidays  and made 'Angels in Art' decorations for the church Christmas Tree Festival. We discovered that, over the years, they have been depicted in an amazing variety of colour and styles, not just wearing flowing white robes.

The term ended with a very pleasant social evening with Christmas food and drinks; an Angelic Quiz; a Body Parts Puzzle and a Name that Baby Quiz using members' childhood photos. We look forward to a varied Spring Programme.

For membership details, contact Hilary Seery 01959 562946 or Avril Norton 01959 700648

Appeal for new members Click here for Sevenoaks Chronicle article 

A NEW VENUE FOR WESTERHAM ROTARY. Westerham's Rotary Club celebrated the arrival of spring with a move to a different venue. Its new meeting-place is The Carpenters' Arms at Limpsfield Chart, and there is a new spring in the step of local Rotarians as a result. Westerham Brewery's beers go down a treat, and the dinners prepared by Chef Dale and his team are delicious and greatly enjoyed. To celebrate the move, three after-dinner speakers of very high calibre gave presentations to the Club at meetings in April and May. Professor Frank Matthews told members and their guests about the ladies of the Air Transport Auxiliary, whose job it was, during the Second World War, to deliver new fighters and bombers fresh from factories to the R.A.F.for operational use. An excellent talk about a little-known but extremely brave group of ladies, whose contribution to the British war effort has not been sufficiently acknowledged. A few weeks later, another well-known figure from the academic world, John Salter of Sevenoaks, spoke about the pleasures of collecting silver. John is a well-known and published expert on silver, and his enthusiasm for silver collecting inspired the whole of his audience. His ability to assess and inform on the silver objects several members had brought to the meeting was remarkable. Then there was a great friend of the Club and local resident, David Whitmore, who spoke most knowledgeably and interestingly on Clementine Churchill. Warm thanks to all three for adding so much to the Club's meetings at The Carpenters' Arms. Incidentally, the Club also wonders whether it holds a world Rotary record! There can be very few Rotary Clubs in existence that can boast of a mother-daughter combination on its membership roll. Westerham's Club can! Rotarian Zena Belton was delighted to be joined in the Club by her mother, when mum, Lynda Belton, moved to the area from Leicestershire and transferred to Westerham Rotary. Loughborough's loss is very much Westerham's gain! Finally, mention should be made of Westerham's annual Fair on The Green, hosted and organised by the town's Rotary Club. This took place on Saturday 17th. May. The sun shone, and The Green was crowded with local folk who came to participate, listen to and enjoy the various entertainments and attractions arranged by the Club. The Fair was its usual great success, and adds so much to the community spirit of the town. So the Club continues to work eagerly and energetically for both the greater world community and for the smaller local one. And if you think you'd like to learn more about what Rotarians do, your first step is to log on to www.rotary1120.org.uk, and follow the steps described therein.

Inner Wheel Club of Westerham

The Inner Wheel was initially formed in 1923 by the wives of Manchester
Rotarians and has grown from that single Club into one of the largest
women’s organisations in the world, with members in 103 countries and
further ones in the process of joining and expanding its numbers. It is now
divided into three levels, firstly the International Inner Wheel, which is self
explanatory, followed by the 29 Districts which form the UK contingent, The
Association if IW Clubs in GB & I and finally flowing into its grassroots, the
smaller units of individual Clubs that operate in towns and villages all over the
British Isles, of which Westerham is one.
Its foundation had a simple conception, it was to promote friendship;
encourage the ideals of personal service and foster international
understanding, and these principles have remained the basis of all IW
activities subsequently. Presently they include meetings at Westerham Hall;
fundraising; inter Clubs which involves journeying to others around the
District and annual rallies that enable all members from any section to meet
one another.
Inner Wheel wishes to extend its friendship to any ladies who are interested
and invites them to contact either Marie-Louise Gibson on 01959 562 46801959 562 468 or
June Ingram on 01959 565 54601959 565 546 for further information.

Westerham's Jill Tookey, MBE, founder and artistic director of the National Youth Ballet was featured on BBC news http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-28776224 as protege Drew McOnie, also supported by Matthew Bourne, premiered his Little Red Riding Hood. Westerham Theatre Club was privileged to visit the Stag Theatre in Sevenoaks yesterday to witness a certain star of the future. The afternoon was without doubt one of the finest your Theatre Club has enjoyed. The founder, and artistic director of this wonderful show was Jill Tookey, who happily is one our members. She featured on BBC South-East News the previous evening when she talked about her career and particularly about this show, how it was developed and the people who were most involved, Jill chatted with some of us during the interval, telling us that some 130 young dancers were on stage and that they had only had 9 days to learn their parts and rehearse. Everything about this afternoon deserves superlatives, from the music, much of it played by a 10-piece jazz band, to the brilliant costumes, the beautiful settings, and the extraordinary acting and dancing. As for the theatre itself, the seats were raked and extremely comfortable. And for a new experience, some of our members even arrived by bus! Westerham Theatre Club costs just £5 to join, and has a great selection of outings on offer - all newcomers welcome! See http://westerhamtheatreclub.weebly.com/ or call Alicia on 01959 563763 >Westerham Theatre Club costs just £5 to join, and has a great selection of outings on offer - all newcomers welcome!

 In July we had our Royal Naval Inspection (like Ofsted) where the Area Officer Lt. Cdr Green came to the unit and inspected all the cadets and watched an evolution on 'A life in TS Gallant' where cadets showcased the best of the previous year, including the trip to Malta, this resulted in us being awarded a 'Burgee' placing us in the top 25% of the units in the country, not only that we were also awarded a 'Commendation'  certificate from the Captain of the Sea Cadets.

 Moving on to area conference we were awarded 'Drakes Drum' for the most seamanship qualifications awarded throughout the year, also Drakes certificate for the most wide spread qualifications issued in the year. We also won the Major Featherstonehaugh Cup for the best unit within Southern Area, we also received a certificate for boating hours (we have to achieve 27 hours per cadet) we achieve 52.3 not bad for a landlocked unit who can only boat 2 evenings a week during the summer. THe icing on the cake was winning the TS Indefatigable Cup being the most improved unit in the country.

 We are £9,000.00 towards a£12,000.00 target to gt to France and Belgium during May, so if you can give us a plug fro some sponsorship all greatly received.

The Westerham Sea Cadet Corps is a registered Charity and part of a nationwide voluntary youth organisation for young adults aged 12 - 18. We also recruit Junior Cadets aged 10 - 12.
Cadets will learn valuable skills and have the opportunity to gain qualifications that future employers view in high regard, such as first aid, DofE and BTECTraining is based around a nautical theme, with cadets experiencing both indoor and outdoor lessons, in a variety of subjects.

During the summer, cadets get the chance to go boating, whereas in the winter, cadets tend to work more towards their chosen specialisations and proficiencies, such as cook steward, seamanship and shooting.

The unit is currently looking urgently for volunteers to assist the Unit Management Committee – a desperate need for a treasurer, secretary and others to assist in the fund raising activities the unit needs to continue working and providing valuable skills to their members and also services to the local community. If you have some spare time and would like to help out please contact the unit on 01959 565006 01959 565006 or email on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Westerham Fire Station

Do you live or work within five minutes travelling time of Westerham Fire Station?

On-call firefighters respond to fire and emergency calls using the same fire engines and equipment as whole-time firefighters, the only difference is that they are not based at a fire station. They carry a pager and respond to emergency incidents using the local station as and when they happen. They receive an annual wage to reflect the time they commit plus additional payments for attending drill nights and incidents.

They are men and women who may have other jobs and are able to provide evening, daytime or weekend cover. When they are on call they may be at home, working for themselves or for a nearby company. The role offers flexible working hours and suits people with childcare commitments and other responsibilities.

You will need to be at least 18 years old, physically fit and able to commit to the on-call hours we need from you. In return we will give you continuous professional training so you can provide a vital service to the local community and help save lives.

There are benefits for employers who release staff to be on-call firefighters too, the employee will be professionally trained to deal with emergencies, and a firefighter on the staff could help save lives and property in the event of an emergency.

All kinds of people can do the job, so if you live or work near Westerham Fire Station, can get there and be operationally ready within five minutes of being called, why not come along to a recruitment event between 7-9pm at Westerham Fire Station, Croydon Road Westerham on Wednesday, 18 March to find out what’s involved or  visit the KFRS website

River Darent

River Darent Consultation - survey responses invited

The River Darent rises in Westerham and flows through Brasted, Shoreham, Eynsford and Lullingstone to meet the Thames just beyond Dartford.  It is particularly precious as it is a chalk streamp which creates an particularly attractive natural environment. The Westerham Town Partnership and Council are represented on the Darent Catchment Improvement Group (DCIG) which wishes to feed into the consultation of the The Environment Agency and The North West Kent Countryside Project (NWKCP) who are preparing a report to fulfil the requirements of the Water Framework Directive. 

The WFD concerns itself with the state of Europe's rivers but there are all sorts of issues relating to fish passage and the removal of  obsolete man-made obstructions and unnecessary weirs which need considering on a individual basis for each river. The Darent River Preservation Society website explains more, and  is represented on the DCIG. 

  In order to feed into the consultation, contributions to a Survey are invited from anyone with an interest in the river. Thank you for your time.

Westerham Brewery

Westerham Brewery is in the top 50 food and drink businesses. Sevenoaks Chronicle article 

New for 2015 is Brewery Fresh beer.  This gives our customers all the benefits of live beer with the convenience of bright beer; there is no sediment to be settled but the beer has sufficient yeast in suspension that it remains fresh for up to four weeks unopened, and five days once opened.  It is available now in 72 pint firkins, 36 pint polypins, 18 pint minipins and 9 pint minicasks in our British BulldogFinchcocks Orginal and God’s Wallop varieties, and other beers will become available in this format throughout the year.  Perfect for fetes, village halls, weddings and garden parties where the beer must be moved on the day it is to be served.  

  Looking forward, 2015 will be The Year of the Hop.  Westerham Brewery has developed a fantastic range of 4% single hop monthly specials which all pack a hoppy punch.  First to launch in February is a single hop pale ale called Sovereign, using hops grown in Kent. Bred from an open pollination at Wye College in Kent and released in 2006, Sovereign is the granddaughter of Pioneer and works well as a single hop.  With floral, grassy notes, it has a wonderfully complex and delicate aroma and a classic, well-rounded bitterness.  March will see the release of the next in the series, a single hop pale ale called Herkules, using German grown hops which impart delicious spicy black pepper and pine characteristics.  The entire year's monthly specials can be found on our website.

 Orders can be placed online www.westerhambrewery.co.uk or by telephone 01732 864427

Dear all,

Just to let you know that John Warde has been taken ill with heart complications while on holiday in Bangkok.  Fortunately yesterdays operation went well, but as with all major surgery we expect a significant recovery time.  He is in a wonderful hospital, receiving excellent care and is expected to make a full recovery.  The doctors suggest he won't be able to fly back to the UK for at least a month and will be out of action for some time once back in the UK.  The Thai's seem to be much better at after care so he will be having lots of physio and tests before the long flight home.

He is in good spirits and is being well looked after by Anthea and his daughter Charlotte who are out in Thailand with him.  Charlie will be joining him in due course.  Everything is set up with house sitters at Garden Cottage so there are no worries or practical needs at home.

 Please could you contact Henry on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any issues relating to Squerryes or any ongoing correspondence appointments with John or Anthea.  Henry will also be available on the office phone 01959 562345 and will be monitoring John's email address.


We are sure John and Anthea would value cards / letters.  We expect the middle of March to be the toughest time as he gets better, but bored and unable to fly home so it would be particularly thoughtful to hold some correspondence for later.  The 8th March (his 75 birthday) could be particularly glum.  His address is:

John Warde
Bumrungrad International Hospital
33 Sukhumvit
3 (Soi Nana Nua)
Bangkok, 10110 Thailand

Please send any Squerryes / admin correspondence through Henry.

Finally we don't plan to update with news until end of March if recovery goes as we expect, so please don't worry if you don't hear anything from us in the meantime.  Please do circulate this news / email as you wish as Henry doesn't have an email address for everyone who might like to have this update.

All the best,

The Warde Family

 Westerham Cycling Club


I would like to extend a further welcome and thanks to our sponsors for 2015 – MoorEnergy Fitness Club, Karrison Property and Cyclepods. In addition to our sponsors, WCC has also partnered with a few of the local business’s to offer club members discounts. Here we welcome Napoli Restaurant, Chocs on the Green and The Beauty Spot. Further details of these member discounts will be forthcoming, as will be the distribution of WCC membership cards.

 As was recently communicated, Westerham Cycling Club has been accredited by British Cycling as a “Go-Ride” club. This will allow the club to achieve one of our 2015 goals to bring a development & coaching programme to the young people of Westerham (and surrounding areas). We will be working in closely with the Westerham Town Partnership and are looking to establish links with Churchill School. More will be communicated in the spring.

 2015 promises to be a big year for WCC but we will not lose focus on the core beliefs that started this club… friendliness, enthusiasm and open to all!

Our Sunday group rides have been successful, even over the cold and sometimes wet and/or icy conditions of the festive period. With a growing member base we will look to diversify the weekly ride in the months ahead – possibly splitting groups and appointing different ride leaders based on anticipated distance or pace, although I hope these can be arranged with common meeting points for plenty of shared coffee and stories.

When Summer-time arrives we will look to have a Wednesday (tbc) evening ride-out with periodic “challenges” to test ones fitness throughout the season – these have tentatively been decided as a hill-climb of Toy’s Hill and a 9-mile time-trial loop from Sundridge to Polhill and back.

Some of you have already signed up to the Bologna trip in May and we will communicate other events and sportives throughout the season ahead.

A re-design of the website is expected soon and will include a lot more detail of club events & calendar.

To be successful, WCC needs to listen to its members. To that end, we welcome any & all feedback and suggestions. Email me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Mark (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) anytime and use the Facebook page to rally support for any ad-hoc ride-outs you might be doing (road or mountain), route sharing or general banter.

The early success of the WCC jersey cannot be underestimated. Our weekly post-ride coffee group is getting noticed and the local feedback has been wonderful with many commenting of how much Westerham “needed” its own cycling club. For those of you that have not yet purchased a jersey, I encourage you to contact Mark Brewer regarding sizing and pricing. Bibs will also be added later and we will communicate once the design is completed.

 Thank you all again for your support!  Wishing you the best for 2015, in cycling and everything else.


Youth coaching sessions to be launched in the spring see Poster

I’m really pleased to announce that Westerham Cycling Club’s recent application to become a British Cycling accredited Go-Ride club has been accepted.

In a nutshell Go-Ride is British Cycling’s development programme for young people. Interestingly 60% of riders on the Great Britain Cycling Team started out at Go-Ride clubs so who knows one day Westerham could have its very own Bradley Wiggins. Please visit http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/…/article/goridest-What-is… for more information.

We aim to launch the Go-Ride part of the club in the early spring and have been given permission to use the King George’s playing fields and the Pavilion as our base. We will also be meeting later this month with representatives from Churchill School in Westerham regarding a partnership, additional coaching facilities and of course a source of potential riders!

Nothing will change with regards to the adult side of the club however I would encourage any club members that would like to volunteer their help to step forward. There is a Go-Ride conference taking place in Dartford on Saturday the 14th March and any volunteers are invited to attend the conference and take part in a workshop run by British Cycling. You can book a place by visiting: http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/…/20150105-goride-news-Boo…. Michael and I will both be attending as the Club’s certificated coaches.

Finally, any parents that have children between the ages six to sixteen that are interested in cycling should consider putting their names down as early as possible as places will be limited. More information on what we will be offering and how to sign your child up will be provided shortly.

Mark Brewer & Michael Craig

 We are recently formed road cycling club, we welcome cyclists of all levels that like to ride regularly in a group. We currently meet every Sunday morning at 08.45am outside MoorEnergy Fitness Club. There are changing facilities and lockers available.

We arrange annual cycling trips to the Bologna region of Italy (and beyond in 2015!) as well as taking part in many sportives in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

WCC is a British Cycling affiliated club and with two Level-1 coaches on our current roster, we will be looking to establish local youth coaching activities in 2015.

Membership is by subscription via the British Cycling website “Club Finder” or here https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/club/profile?&club_id=7052

The club is now affiliated with British Cycling and two of our members have recently achieved Level 1 coaching status and are progressing on to Level 2. Club numbers currently sit at 20 but we have had a lot of interest and I believe the club will really take of in spring of next year. I have designed the club kit which is now in production so you will hopefully see cyclist in and around Westerham sporting the new jerseys soon.

 Mark Brewer and Nigel Moore from Moore Energy Fitness club have been riding together for about four years. Mark has been cycling most of his life but got hooked by a charity event that he did for the Princes Trust called the "Coast to Coast" Challenge which was a ride from one side of Costa Rica to the other climbing the continental shelf which was about 5 days up hill and 1 day down. He has also completed an Iron Man man so can advise club members on the training required to complete a Triathlon. Club Members have done numerous events/challenges and we aim to do a lot more moving forward.

 Over the last four years we have entered a team from the gym into the Princes Trust "Palace to Palace" cycle ride. The team has consisted of a wide range of individuals that age from mid twenties to mid seventies. Prior to the event we trained with the group and had some really lovely rides and even though there was a huge disparity in ability we have always finished as a team, albeit some quicker than others.

 We already take a group to Italy once sometimes twice a year and next year we are hoping to take a group to France to sample some of the Tour De France routes.

£25 subscription fee for admin and insurance purposes. I am working on club kit that will advertise the club name and give the club members a true club feeling.

Weekly ride, every  Sunday at MoorEnergy fitness club on Fullers Hill at 09:45am and tend to do rides of around 30 - 40km.

Westerham Bowls Club

 Auction on Saturday 28th February 2015 see Flyer

Westerham Bowling Club is having a big fundraising push over the next 18 months in an effort to get a new Club House. Our existing building is over 30 years old, was secondhand when we bought it, and no longer provides the space and facilities that the modern game requires.

How time flies!  One day your Club is in its infancy and then, in the blink of an eye, it’s suddenly 109 years old!!  All of a sudden you find you have outgrown your current ‘home’ and you need something bigger and better to keep your Club up-to-date and moving forward for the next one hundred years.  Westerham BC is pursuing just such a course and aiming for a new Club House.  We have had fantastic support from the local community already and, to those of you who came to our Auction at the end of February, our heartfelt thanks for your support and generosity.

Are there any online shoppers out there?  Why not support our cause (Westerham Bowling Club) through www.easyfundraising.org.uk and boost our Building Fund through retailer donation that costs the shopper nothing at all. 

Last, but not least, don’t forget we are a Bowling Club who will be looking for new members from the end of April 2015.

Date for your Diary:  OPEN DAY Sunday 24th May 2015   Time: 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Venue: Westerham Bowling Club, King George V Playing Fields, Costells Meadow (off Quebec Avenue), Westerham TN16 1BN Tel: 01959 561305 For more details contact Club Secretary: Anne Farley Tel: 01959 565106 or check out our website This email address is being protected from spambots.

Perhaps you are one of those few people who have never realised that there is a Bowling Club and Green tucked away in the corner of King George V Playing Fields.  We’ve been in Westerham for more than a century and have great plans for our future development to carry us forward for the benefit of future generations over the next 100 years.  Do our photos make you think of hot Summer days spent in the outdoors?  Is your New Year Resolution to get more active? Why not give bowls a try?  It’s a social game which can be played by men, women and children of all ages and abilities.

It can be played just for your own enjoyment or it can be a competitive game that you can make as challenging as you like.  It’s a way of meeting new people and making friends on and off the Green, in the friendly and sociable surroundings of our Club House and Bar.
