THE CHEQUERS, THEN AND NOW

This article from the East Kent Mercury of April 21 details the long and fascinating history of the Chequers, the only remaining pub in Ash village centre.
The pub was originally built as a manor house in the 14th century. It did not become an inn until almost 300 years later.

THANKS TO CLARE UNGERSON

Our thanks to Clare Ungerson for her very interesting talk and presentation last night on 'The Jewish Refugee Camp at Stonar' (Richborough). She spoke for nearly an hour - illustrating her talk with many contemporary pictures - then answered questions from the large audience in Ash Village Hall.
Thanks also to everyone who helped with the organisation of the event.
