Community Advent Calendar

To help bring a bit of cheer and to celebrate our community of Swalecliffe and Chestfield, we are planning to release a short video clip on our Facebook page every day in December.  We hope to feature local people, members of our church and community, places and pictures - all accompanied by a festive soundtrack.

Please do join in!  Do you have a favourite carol, Christmas recipe, story or picture you could share? Send your Christmas-themed clips (no longer than 2 minutes please) and pictures or other material to  Alternatively you can post to St John's Centre, 11 St John's Road, Swalecliffe, Whitstable, Kent CT5 2QU.  For more information telephone Jane Myhill on 07761963971.

Help us celebrate Christmas and what our wonderful community

of Swalecliffe and Chestfield has to offer!
