Town Talk

ADOWNPOURof rain as the floats and walking groups left Holmesdale School on the way to Potyns Sports Ground at Snodland Carnival meant the number of people along the route and at Potyns was fewer than in previous years. The theme was trains and the judges were the

Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling, Mark Rhodes; the Rector of Snodland, the Rev Hugh Broad- bent; Robert Beswarick and Bob Kingsbury. The parade left the school and went down Malling Road, turned into the High Street, along Queens Avenue, into Holborough Road, up the High Street, Constitution Hill and into Potyns. Karen Sowten, chief executive of Snodland

Town Council, said: "The day was a success apart from the rainwhich stopped when the pa- rade finished."

Players present double bill

THE Snodland & Valley Commu- nity Players (SaVCoPs) performed two one-act plays at Snodland Community Centre. The plays, Undelivered Letters, written and directed by Frederic Dhombres, and Passing Shad- ows, written and directed by Neil Vinall, were the group's entries into the Medway Little Theatre's Duncan Rand 41st One Act Play Festival.

Undelivered Letters was about

Frederic's two great uncles one of whom died in the trenches in WWI

while the other fought for the French resistance and died in a concentration camp in Poland in WWII. Passing Shadows told of a ficti-

tious meeting of three famous people after they had died. The group won five acting awards, the adjudicator's award and a medal at the festival. The performances were dedi-

cated to Brett Baker, a SaVCoPs supporter who died recently aged 33, while waiting for a liver trans- plant. £1 from every ticket sold
