St Martin’s Heritage Trust announces
its first event
The newly-formed St Martin’s Brasted
Heritage Trust is organising carol singing around the village, which
will take place after the lighting of the tree on the green on
Friday 8th December at 6.30pm, and a display of Christmas trees from
local residents and businesses in the church.
Carol singing around the village was once a regular feature of
village life and the idea is to revive the practice and invite along
anyone who fancies being involved in what should be a hugely
enjoyable and sociable occasion to take part. There’s no requirement
for anyone taking part to have an outstanding singing voice – though
we’d love it if you did! – but enthusiasm and and a sense of
Christmas spirit will count for much more. If you would like the
singers to visit your house in Brasted village, do let us know and,
although logistics might prevent us getting around to everyone who
asks, we’ll do our best to spread the Christmas cheer as far as we
After an hour or so singing at locations around the village, the
singers will finish up at the church to see the display of Christmas
trees. Children are invited to come along to the church, where they
will be able to take part in a supervised crafts evening, producing
decorations for their own Christmas tree at home or in the church.
Next door in the Stanhope Arms, there will be a lively and informal
evening of carols sung around the bar, which will start around 8pm.
There will also be a tree of remembrance in the church vestibule,
and there’s an open invitation to add a personal message for a loved
There are also a limited number of spots for Christmas trees in the
church available. The church will provide a power point for a set of
lights – or you could use battery-operated lights – and you’ll need
to turn up and set up your tree at a pre-arranged time and commit to
removing it at a set time a week later. It’s hoped that this will be
a truly memorable event to be a part of and we’re anticipating that
it will be hugely popular.
We’ll also be offering the opportunity for people to fill in a card
at the village green, which will be attached to the tree on your
behalf. It’s hoped this will become a regular feature of the church
calendar in much the same way as it has in Westerham, and these will
be on display for a week. Details of church opening times during the
week will be posted soon.
St Martin's Brasted announces the

We now have an interim committee in place to see us through the
formative stages of the Trust as we establish a constitution, a set
of aims and objectives and develop an action plan to take us through
the first twelve months including applying for the Trust to gain
