Another Otford Superstar!

Society Chairman Rod Shelton was delighted to present the second of the Society’s Superstar awards to Robert Hunt at our public meeting on November 10th. In Rod’s words, the community had voted for someone “known to you all; his gentle, friendly manner has endeared him to many. He is known for his generous nature and always having time to talk and listen to others. He is a feature of the Lunch Club and his community spirit, helping to pick-up rubbish around the village every week is a familiar sight to us all.”

The meeting saw an excellent turnout of residents, all keen to hear the guest speaker, Nigel Britten, chair of the Sevenoaks Division of CPRE: the Countryside Charity. In answering the question ‘Who Cares About the Green Belt?’ he outlined the history of this measure to protect our much loved countryside and the challenges posed by local housing targets and planned developments. There was a lively question and answer session afterwards.
