A busy Hythe Festival fortnight

We have a range of events in this year’s Hythe Festival. Learn about bees, visit the community garden, take tea on the canal side, and join us at the Free for All on the Green event.

On Wednesday 6th July, we’ve a talk by Nicki Gammans, who is running the scheme to reintroduce the short-haired bumblebee to Romney Marsh. An informative and entertaining speaker, shuce will discuss the threats to our bee populations and what can be done to save them. The talk is free and takes place at the Tin Tabernacle at 6pm.

Our community garden and allotment at Tynwald Residential Home is open for tours on Thursday 7th July, from 10am to 1pm. It is a great chance to see this lovely large area that we have been working on for the last four years. Meet some of the volunteers and see how you can be involved.

There’s then our Tea for Transition event on the canal-side, at the band stand, on Saturday 9th July, 2.30pm to 5.30pm. Share your home-made sandwiches and cakes (or bought ones), bring chairs or sit on the grass, meet old friends and make new ones.

Prior to these events, we’ve a stall at the Free for All event on the Green on Saturday 2nd July. We’ll have the apple press on show and lots of information about our activities. If you’d like to help out on the stall, or with any of the other events, please make contact. We’ll also then be helping to clean the Green afterwards, with a litter-pick here from 5pm, meet at the Tin Tabernacle.
