There has been a strong demand for new U3As in North and West Kent in the last few years, attracting large numbers of retired people who are keen to continue learning, developing their skills and meeting new people. Recently, new U3As have been set up in Medway East, Swanley, Kingshill, Maidstone Invicta, Bearsted, Westerham and Edenbridge. Now there are proposals to start another U3A in Meopham.
Detectives investigating a series of burglaries in Kent have issued two e-fits of men they want the public’s help in identifying.
A number of break-ins have been reported in the Sevenoaks and Tonbridge areas, as well as in rural parts of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells in recent weeks. Others have been reported in the neighbouring Meopham area.
Residents in these areas are being asked to report any suspicious activity to police, as well as ensure their property is secure.
