    CHANGE the date. ‘Kent in the 19th Century’ a talk by Bob Ogley will now take place at 7pm on Monday March 19, at Otford Library instead of March 8. It is hoped that this new date will be popular and those who have already booked their tickets from the Library will still be able to attend. Tickets cost £5 and include refreshments but booking is essential as seating is limited. For further information please speak to a member of staff or contact the library via 03000 413131 or email otfordlibrary@kent.gov.uk.

Whether you have little or no knowledge, the caller will give help and your fellow dancers will also assist you.
