At last, I was beginning to think I was the only one "Jacey". I am near West Malling, how about you?

I am in Beltinge, just outside Herne Bay.

Was bought up in Cliftonville, and returned to this part of Kent 6 years ago.

nanapug Fri 09-Sep-11 22:34:31

Still not many of us are there? Very strange....

Hi I am in Kent too, born and bred here. Started life in Maidstone, brought up in Longfield, married life in Welling, and ended up in Ramsgate.

Hi Nanapug, I am not far from you. One of my daughters lives in the Hampton area of Herne Bay.

Sorry that last message regarding Herne Bay was for Grandmac

I originate from Kent, Romney Marsh area. Left many many years ago, and now live in Suffolk. Still visit though, as have family and friends there. I went to school in Folkestone. I am surprised that there aren't more people from the County.

I used to go beagling on Romney Marsh. Fun, but the dykes were too wide and I often ended up very wet smile

New to Gransnet and living in Midlands for 35 years but I'm a Maid of Kent (or is it Kentish Maid - can never remember which is which side of the river) and feel all nostalgic at hearing these places again. I grew up in village close to Leeds Castle (my dad used to do building repair work there for Lady Baillie and I often had the run of the private areas as a child).

Still miss being close enough to go down to the coast on Sunday afternoon for seafood tea - usually the stalls under arches at Folkestone. Anyone remember that part of town?

Hello everyone, I just joined a few minutes ago, so I'm a bit lost to say the least.

I live in Kent, in a village south of Ashford.

I lived in London until I was 31 and then hubby and me moved to Kent. Lived in Benenden, Rolvenden and Tenterden since we moved here nearly 40 years ago but have lived just outside Ashford for nearly 30 years now, so we're quite settled here in this village. At 68 the thought of moving again would sound like a nightmare.

I see some are from Herne Bay, Beltinge, Whitstable, Medway etc. etc. which are all quite "local" to us, about twenty minutes / half an hour's drive.

Bet I won't be able to find my way back to this page ! confused Hope I can, though so I'll give it a try.....

Londoner Fri 03-Aug-12 16:38:58

Whoops, I should have said NORTH of Ashford. I must be feeling a bit nervous / trying to find my way around the site.

Londoner Fri 03-Aug-12 16:40:51

Hi YatH, I live VERY close to Leeds Castle.

Also know Folkestone well.
