Thanks for the orchard update from Pippa Palmar through the Kent Orchards for Everyone Project - "A fantastic number of locals from Iwade were passionate about their plums during March when they attended a big planting of 27 new plum trees. These trees gapped up the spaces between the trees which are sadly decaying in Iwade’s community orchard. With the help of the ‘Kent Orchards for Everyone’, a Heritage Lottery funded project, 50 members including many children from the community planted, staked and protected their new plum trees and are now keenly awaiting their fruition.

Do you remember 1983?
IV has been asked to find out if any of its readers know anything about a car crash in 1983. Here's the details - "I am looking for the local newspaper that published the accident and death of the car(mini metro) crash with a bus in November 1983. It was definitely on the road classed as Iwade and was approaching the bridge to go to Sheerness. I know it was put in a local newspaper at that time and really would like to get a copy of the details that were published on the lady who passed away and her family Mum and Dad were pictured in the paper too. The lady in the crash was Judith Hills she was approximately 38 years old when the accident happend, was married to Malcolm Hills she had 3 children too at the time and her son was in the car in the passenger seat with her at the time of the crash and his name is Justin Hills and he survived." If you know anything email or you can email Vicky direct at
