Wye Barn Dance - take your partners please!

Abbey Capers Barn Dance Band will play very live music at Wye Village Hall, Saturday 7th October. This Barn Dance is an informal family event in which everyone, however young or old, can join in and enjoy together. Entrance is by ticket in advance only. The doors will open 18.30 - 22.30. More »

Please step forward now and contact David Reece for tickets 01233 812130, or by email. Or buy tickets from Ticketyboo, Bridge Street, Wye. Tickets are £15 per head (under 16s £8). The ticket price includes a ploughman's platter or hot dogs, and tea or coffee. Please bring your own drinks.

The Abbey Capers Barn Dance Band musicians are from Faversham. The band play traditional tunes like Kentish Cricketers on a range of instruments, and English barn dances are lively social occasions suitable for all ages. The caller knows that some of those present have little or no experience of this type of dancing, or perhaps only a vague recollection of how to do-si-do, or strip the willow. Therefore the caller will encourage inexperienced dancers onto the dance floor, and explain each dance before the music begins!

There will be a raffle, and a prize for the best dressed table. The theme for the evening will be 'country.'

The Wye Barn Dance is a fundraising social event, in aid of the next stage in the Wye Centre project. » Less

A sunny Friday in Wye

A sunny Friday in Wye

The importance of the Wye Neighbourhood Plan main objective of a 'walkable village' was clear today, as were the constraints of Wye's medieval roads and the ageing infrastructure underneath them. A skillful HGV driver only managed to get through the village by inching his 13' wide load up Scotton Street, with it projecting over the top of a parked car. Fortunately without damage, as the car was small and it was a still day. More »

The transporter had carried the abnormally wide load from York without incident, but was held up for some time by this one car. The load was a mobile office unit on its way to Sidelands. Scotton Street is a notorious area for incidents of damage to parked cars.

At the same time KCC closed Bridge Street to enable South East Water's contractors to repair another burst water main. This time in the road outside Swan House. This forced buses to either do a U turn on Golden Square, or leave Wye via Upper Bridge Street and Church Street. KCC has also issued two current permits for the High Street. One is to repair another burst main opposite 34 High Street, which appears to be completed, but there is a failing main drain cover nearby which KCC records as a 'danger for road users.' Repairs are due to be completed on this fitting by 26th September.

This is a repeat of the repair made to the same drain cover in September 2016, as reported here. Last year contractors closed Wye High Street and worked overnight to avoid disrupting the bus route.

Community Warden Richard Sinden was on hand today to direct traffic and witness any damage. He also alerted bus drivers to the closure of Bridge Street, as they were not aware of the problems ahead.
