Benenden villagers came together on August 8th in our Village Hall to mark the retirement of the Hall Chairman, John Clarke after 38 years. John is a well-known and loved member of the community having also served as a Parish Councillor and member of the Benenden Players for many years. John said “I am proud to have been associated with this fine Hall since before it was even built in 1977. It is such a wonderful space and I love to see it full of people enjoying themselves in a wide range of varied activities ranging from exercise and dance classes, to wedding receptions, annual panto, and much more”. John was presented with a specially commissioned painting of the Village Hall by local artist, Charlotte Molesworth.
