With thanks to David Doré
Meet author Melody Foreman who will be talking about her new book ‘Bomber girls’
Tuesday 24 February 7.00pm
Risking their lives and flying in all weathers, the Bomber Girls were the women pilots of the Air Transport Auxiliary. During World War II they flew Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancaster Bombers from factories to RAF bases across Britain. Melody Foreman’s book charts the story of these brave and dedicated women.
Historical note – Pauline Gower, who was instrumental in setting up the women’s arm of the Air Transport Auxilliary, was born and grew up in Tunbridge Wells
Tickets are priced £1.00 and can be booked by contacting Tunbridge Wells library 03000 413131 or email email@example.com
Richard Snow has taken over responsibility for updating the Village Diary, which can be viewed at www.pembury.org
The diary serves two purposes. Firstly to enable event organisers to check the diary before arranging an event to avoid some clashes. Secondly to enable everyone to know what is happening in the village. It is important that information is sent to Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org with date, times, title of event, venue and contact details.
The www.pembury.org diary will go live on 1st Feb.
Work has started to rebuild the A21 between Pembury and Tunbridge. I used to drive up and down this stretch of road every day. The new alignment will be a little bit different to what you see today. Already the ‘landscape’ has been altered with the felling of a lot of the undergrowth and trees that I remember crawling past start stop fashion every weekday.
And again thank you to David Dore for the video.
This section of the old A21 between Tonbridge and Pembury will soon disappear forever.
