Help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes
Iwade's Steve Carnt is running the London Marathon for JDRF, the type 1 diabetes charity as his daughter Isobel who goes to Iwade School suffers from this life-changing condition. This is what Steve has to say, "I am nearing the end of my epic journey to run the London Marathon, as I am only 10 days away from the BIG day, with the date fast approaching. The last couple of weeks have been all about the taper which involves a gradual reduction in distance but an increase in intensity. This has meant more hard work, through hill sessions and pace rather than grinding out the miles, which if I’m honest I prefer. I now need to focus on my preparation for the day, food, protein, travel, rest, sleep etc. and next week involves pretty much total relaxation with a few gentle runs thrown in. A few days before the race, I have to formally register at the Excel Centre to prove my identity and receive my official race number. I will be providing an update following the race as to the whole experience of the day, the trials and tribulations, hopefully be able to provide a pretty decent time as a result of all the hard work over the last few months….Until then wish me luck" - click on the pic of Steve to donate to his page, he only needs another £361 to reach his £2000 target!

A massive Iwade Observer apology as there was an incorrect percentage in the February Iwade Observer version of the Housing Needs Survey Results. It should have read "85% of respondents who answered the question said they would not be supportive ov future housing development in Iwade Parish" not 5%.

Model Flying Club raise £1740 for Air Ambulance!
The Medway Model Flying Club started in 1974 at Raspberry Hill and have been flying at Orchard farm Iwade since 1986. Collecting for the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air AmbulanceTrust since 2004 they have raised over £12000 for the charity to date, this year raising a massive £1740. A big thank you to Chairman Phil Fearn who got in contact to give IV an update. The Model Flying Club have had displays (static) at Borden Village Fete  and Bredgar Light Railway during the year and are always willing to give a talk about radio control  model aircraft to any Iwade clubs or organisations that are interested. The Club had a lucky escape this year with the new Solar farm nearly ending the club, but the size of the farm was reduced so they were able to continue at Orchard Farm. Contact Phil Fearn at pfiwade@blueyonder.co.uk for any more information and the Club would like to wish Iwade residents a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
