A Return to the Hopfields
It seems the imminent house building plan that Shepway has for the area has driven the War & Peace Revival away from the area and back to Whitbreads Hopfields Showgrounds at Beltring.
The show, which was immensely popular for the past four years at Folkestone Racecourse and responsible for attracting a huge amount of trade to the area from all over the country and the continent, is to be staged at Pembury in 1917 and beyond.
A long term contract has been signed which will see the show at Beltring for at least the next four years Continue reading 2017 War and Peace Revival will not be held at Folkestone Racecourse

In Memory of Brian Hargreaves
Popular Rye Artist
One of Rye’s Own best known artists, Brian Hargreaves died suddenly on the last day of September 2011.
Brian’s wonderful line drawings of Rye and the district have graced the pages of this magazine on many occasions. We shall miss him greatly. Brian will be remembered locally for the fine architectural quality drawings of Rye’s buildings which cover every corner of the town and have appeared in the fine Millennium publication “Ryennium” which he illustrated for Jo Kirkham, and in the two books he produced with his wife Joyce who is also an author and artist. Many pictures from these three publications have been used in the pages of “Rye’s Own” and “Hythe & Romney Life”. Continue reading Great Friend of Cinque Ports Magazines who died in September 2011
