Edenbridge & District Twinning Association is welcoming their French visitors for the weekend of Friday 12th to Sunday 14th May. The French group is arriving late on the Friday evening, and the following day there is an outing to Penshurst Place and Church. That evening everyone is joining together for a meal in Edenbridge WI Hall, and on the Sunday a farewell light brunch is being held in Rickards Hall, with entertainment by Marlings Morris.
A number of French ‘twinners’ are expected and any help with hosting would be much appreciated. The Association pays for the activities for the French, courtesy of fund-raising events and donations, so those hosting just need to provide bed, breakfast, picnic and some drinks for their guests, and it doesn’t matter if you can’t speak French.
Information is on the website www.edta.org.uk or please contact 01732 863226 by early April.

Sir John Surtees Sadly Dies......
 
Edenbridge Racing “Hero” Sadly Dies!

Sir John Surtees a well known and respected “Hero” of Edenbridge, sadly died on Friday March 10th at St George’s Hospital, London, due to a respiratory condition which he had been suffering from, he was 83 years old.

He was a favourite to all who knew him in the town, he had a super following when he demonstrated his car’s and motorcycles in the Town’s 2014 May Day Parade...screaming engines, along Station Road through the Town, with himself driving and his crew in and on Surtees own cars and motorcycles.

Edenbridge Racing “Hero” Sadly Dies!

He was, and is still the only man living to have ever won a The Grand Prix “World Championship” on two and four wheels…A superb achievement for this young racer in his early days on the race tracks.

During his reign as a motorcycle racer he won four 500cc titles in – 1956, 1958, 1959, and 1960, also winning the Formula 1 Title in 1964 racing for Ferrari. In his early days, from 1958 to 1960 he was 350cc and the 500cc World Champion on two wheels.

John was awarded an MBE in 1959, which was the same year as he won “Sports Personality of the Year” a Tribute to a Great Racing Hero of the era!

In 2009, John was then awarded the OBE, followed in 2016 with a CBE award

During his race career Surtees, had the magic influence and determination, coupled with daring speed to win his Most Honoured Titles on two and four wheels. Between 1960 and 1972 he drove for Lotus, Honda, Cooper, Lola and BRM – winning six F1 races with 111 starts.

In later year’s he set up his own Formula 1 team when it made it’s first showing in 1970 at the British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch…One of his favourite circuits.

He also became Chairman of the British Team in the latter years which was the A1 Grand Prix Series, which has now been replaced.

His son Henry was competing in the Formula 2 series when he was tragically killed at Brands Hatch in 2009, only aged 18. John and his family went on to remember their son, and to make it a lasting Memorial to his Name with the - Henry Surtees Foundation - in aid of many who are recovering from brain and bodily related injuries due to motorsport accidents.

We Remember Sir John Surtees as a remarkable man…and more his own life devoted to motor sports, he was the life of Motor Racing in cars and motorcycles. He remains the “Hero” of the British people….As Still the only Man Winning Two World Campionships on Two and Four Wheels….!!!

Neighbourhood Plan Project – Edenbridge 2030
Support for the Neighbourhood Plan vision of the future for Edenbridge
Comments from people at the recent community engagement events 100% supported the vision for the future of Edenbridge in the next 15 years. Those who came to the drop-in sessions at the Eden Centre and Rickards Hall agreed that they wanted a compact and balanced community, connected in ways that encourage walking and cycling, and sympathetically developed to enhance the environment, maintaining and improving existing facilities.
They also would like thriving attractive High Street in character with the existing mix of historic architectural periods, continuing to attract visitors as a tourism hub with improved facilities, and to have retained and regenerated industrial areas, adapted for changing economic trends and providing local employment.
Giant maps of Edenbridge and surrounding area gave people the chance to pin flags with comments on aspects they liked, or on matters about which they had concerns..........Click Here for Full Press Release.

Not only has many parts of Britain seen and felt the damage to their property, with thousands of homes being completely flooded, and their many possessions ruined, left many of these ones in complete despair, as many were with-out any home insurance to cover and pay for the flood damage caused.
Recently Edenbridge, especially near the river and that immediate area was on the brink of major flooding disaster, as residents near-by saw the river once again in full flow and bursting its banks reaching the top of the archway on the town bridge!......Click Here for Story and Gallery

How can I contact the Edenbridge Community Warden?
Kent

Edenbridge has a Community Warden who provides a link between those who live and work here and the organisations which serve the community, such as the Town Council, Housing Associations, County and District councils, and the Police.  The role is funded by a jig-saw of contributions from several authorities, and two local charities - the John Coldman Trust and the Great Stone Bridge Trust.

The Warden provides a useful route for a two-way exchange of information, and is a valuable extra pair of friendly eyes and ears when out and about. He patrols round the parish, on foot and in his distinctive vehicle, checking on issues which can spoil the daily environment for local people, including anti-social behaviour such as graffiti, litter, fly-tipping, dog-fouling and vandalism - and arranging for them to be dealt with as soon as possible.

To contact the current Community Warden
Rose Briggs call 07920 099235.
