The killing of innocent Ukrainian civilians continues on this the second anniversary of the Russian invasion. Perhaps if Joe Biden diverted the arms going to Israel to Ukraine, he could stop two wars at once, one in Ukraine, and one in Gaza. The USA (and the UK) have made over 100 deliveries of weapons and ammunition to Israel since October each between $100m & $300m, at the same time reneging on billions of promised support to Ukraine..

The Parish Alliance led by Borough Green PC have worked with Nu-Venture Buses to ensure a weekly "Shopper Trip" can be maintained on the 58 and 70 routes to West Malling Larkfield and Maidstone. We have obtained a grant from KCC and financial support from the participating Parishes. The success of the route depend on local people making sure all our elderly people are aware of the Services.

BERNIE'S AID TRIP TO UKRAINE     REPORT & PICTURES

One of the regular contributions to the Voice for many years were the humorous observations about village life and characters by Muriel Rurial, now sadly ended. But with the closing of "Kent Aloominum" Margaret, editor of the Voice has published an excerpt, one that bought tears to my eyes. Muriel Rurial 2007 

We heard the sad news today that Derek Freeman, the author of these humorous reflections on Borough Green, has passed away. I have posted a collection of his short off the wall stories on a dedicated page

That forbidden view....

                       DO NOT LOOK
