Kent history

Members may be interested by the information in this email from John Bunyard to the OMS committee.

“I just wanted to let you know that the talk I gave before Christmas at Maidstone Museum, which you kindly advertised in the last Newsletter, was a sell-out. Interestingly, there were some heavy hitters in the audience from the Kent sports scene. It led directly to the start of discussions about the possibility of developing more than one permanent exhibition of Kent sports and social history. Not a bad result!

Needless to say, the Covid crisis has put it all on ice for the moment. Since the public appetite is obviously there, however – 20,400 visitors came to the Maidstone exhibition – I thought we must keep the flame burning. So I’ve been working furiously on a major new website concerning Kent’s amazing history. If I get to the end, it will contain over 800 exhibits; but, as a lot of people are already going a bit stir-crazy, I’ve just posted the first 10%, which ought to keep anyone occupied for an hour or two. It’s now up at https://oldbunyardskentpride.com/

Please do take a look, and by all means share it around.

Regards
John”
