Annual Civic Service, 26th June
The annual Civic Service will take place on Sunday 26 June at 10.00am in Shorne Parish Church. Representatives from Shorne Parish, Gravesham Borough, and Kent County Councils will be present, and the service will be followed at 11.00 with an informal reception at Shorne Village Hall.
The service is open to anybody who lives within the Parish – of all faiths or none. This is an opportunity to meet with elected representatives and raise issues with them over a glass of wine (or a soft drink if preferred). This year in particular, with the threat to the Parish from Highways England, it is important to show that Shorne really is a community worth fighting for. The service will be led this year by Revd Nigel Bourne, Vicar of Chalk, and Shorne Scouts will be in attendance. Please put this date in your diary and come along – both to the church service and the reception afterwards.
