ROCK is coming to Stone…along with blues, folk, indie and a host of other great music.
The first ever Glastonferry beer, music and food festival is on October 5, 6 and 7th, with live bands, real ales and great food at The Ferry Inn.
The charity festival will feature everything from classic rock to sea shanties, plus a fine selection of local beers and ciders and a special menu from head chef Dominic Knight – nicknamed ‘the celebrity chef’ thanks to his Outlook On Oxney column. Friday will be steak and curry night, there will be an all-day BBQ on Saturday and a roast on Sunday.
The event will raise funds for a village cause, along with ARRCC – A local Rye charity which supports disabled people in their daily lives. They offer numerous activities from arts and crafts, music, swimming, gym, horse carriage driving, fishing and much more.
Dozens of musicians will perform from Friday evening through to around 6pm on Sunday. blues rock trio The Black Sheep, who have twice supported Dr Feelgood legend Wilko Johnson at London’s 100 Club, and the fun-loving Tragic Mushrooms who are guaranteed to get people up and dancing to good-time favourites ranging from Blur to The Who.
Among others taking the stage will be Wandle Delta bluesman CJ Tozer and his band Old Boots N’ Blisters and new rock covers band Total Mayhem, playing classics from artists such as Status Quo and Queen.

Two primary schools in Kent have been helped by Rye and District Lions Club, whose area extends from Rye into Kent to Hawkhurst. The Lions in the UK produce a series of Life Skills teaching materials for school children on various subjects, possibly not normally part of the curriculum, such as how to deal with changes such as family breakdown and bereavement, alcohol, sexual health and drug abuse. Also teaching aids are produced to help children gain confidence, responsibility, develop relationships and to make the most of their abilities. The total of 25 aids are designed for specific age groups, such as 3 to 5 years old, 5 to 11 years and 11 to 18 years old. Many are interactive and can be easily photocopied for hand-outs and project work. Copies of the “Life Changes” teaching aid have been presented to Mr Edgesmith, Head Teacher of Sandhurst Primary School and to Miss Rock, Deputy Head, at Hawkhurst Church of England Primary School.
