Village diary…..

The hamlet of Chillenden in East Kent, UK, lies midway between the historic cathedral city of Canterbury and the gateway port of Dover.  It lies in the rural landscape on the edge of the North Downs, surrounded by some wonderful English countryside.  It has a population of about 100 people living in 45 houses.  There is a church, a working farm, a village hall, a pond, a brilliant pub, and a windmill.

Actually, even a keen amateur would do!  I need some help to migrate the village website on to a more modern platform.  The current software I use is no longer supported and some of the existing features are dropping off.  If you can help, or know of someone else who can, please drop me a line.  David HG
