Congratulations to newly elected Cllr Jeffery! Poppy has just been elected to Kent County Youth Council, having watched her election video it's no wonder she was elected - she is very good.
I have some catching up to do now...
On a separate note, we have just returned from the Rochester Dickensian Christmas Festival's carol service. Usually a lovely half hour singing carols surrounded by people in Dickensian costumes with a snow machine going - very Christmassy. This year the carols was sung to music from the BAE Systems Brass Band. Why couldn't the council choose a band from somewhere else? They were very good, but... BAE are Britain's biggest arms manufacturers, responsible for thousands, perhaps millions, of deaths. Hardly a good accompaniment to Christmas Carols.
