Mayor's Message -  10 December 2019

Christmas is a busy time in Kentish. This Friday will see the Annual Lions Christmas Parade starting in Main Street, Sheffield from 6pm. I am often amazed to see so many floats. Thanks to the Lions Club and specifically the Deputy Mayors work in organising this event.

Saturday will begin with the Claude Road Hall Christmas Markets from 9am – 2pm at Claude Road Memorial Hall. Just the place for last minute Christmas ideas and great food. Also on Saturday, Lake Barrington will host the Head of the Lake regatta at the International Rowing Course.

On Sunday Railton will celebrate with the Railton Christmas Party at the Railton Recreation and Community Hall (previously known as the Green Hall) from 12pm – 2pm. A great day of family fun with a free community BBQ will be hosted by the Railton Fire Brigade. Santa will arrive at 1:45pm, until he does, there will be plenty of time to use the jumping castle, have your face painted or buy an ice-cream. Special thanks to the Railton Squash Club committee for organising this event.

On Sunday night, Kentish will enjoy an evening of spectacular Christmas music at the annual Kentish Community Carols held at the Sheffield Town Hall from 7pm. I always enjoy singing carols and plan to attend.

I note that the old hedge opposite the Sheffield School in Henry street has been poisoned (sprayed) by someone on more than one occasion. The good news is, they haven't killed it., the bad news is, we have someone in our community (I assume) who did this. Shame on the person who did this.
