Pupils’ appeal for safer roads

KEY Stage 2 pupils from the Church of England Primary School, Snodland took part in a giant walking bus, encouraging motorists not to ex- ceed 20mph near the school. About 190 chil-

dren took part in the Brake charity’s Go20 campaign. Assistant head Emily Wright said: "Each class had a banner to encourage drivers to Go 20 around Snodland CEP school, homes and shops to protect children, cy- clists and other pedestrians. The event also promoted the benefits of walking and cycling."

June takes dive for church hall

A SNODLAND woman is to do a sky dive, at the age of 82, to raise funds for a church hall. June Wright, of Brook Lane, will jump from an aeroplane at Headcorn air- field on August 29.

She said:

"Most people say I must be mad, but it is safe, the peo-

ple there are experts. "I could have held a coffee morning and raised about £80 but doing this I am aiming at £1,400 and have got £860 already." June is raising money for the

hall at Christ Church, Malling Road which, she says, “is old and in need of TLC." June has been married to Alan

for 59 years and the couple have two daughters, Caroline and Julie, seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. She is a pastoral assistant,

helps run the dementia cafe, is a member of the parochial church council and Snodland Town Ac- tive Retirement Association (Stara). To make a donation, call her on 01634 241005.
