Below is a selection of recent village events.
Led by the Reverend Martin Hatfield of the Baptist Church, a service of Rememberance was held at the village hall on 8 November 2015, when the servicemen killed in both world wars were remembered. Afterwards the congregation made their way up to the War Memorial.
The "Last Post" was sounded poigniantly by Adam before
wreaths were laid and a 2 minute silence held.

The Little Kingshill Litter Pickers spent the afternoon of 3 May dodging heavy showers and gathering roadside litter
The weather outside wasn't frightful,
and the evening was quite delightful,
particularly when all the children sang
"Away in a Manger".
Warmest thanks to Rev. Jonathan Stewart
for leading us with enthusiasm and humour,
- to the Baptist Church band for playing with such gusto,
- to Bran and Petra for yet again generously hosting the event
and to the LKVS committee, particularly Margaret and Bernice,
for organising everything behind the scenes.
Most of all, thanks to everyone, young and old
who turned out to lend their voices and to make
the evening a very enjoyable village occasion.
The collection for Iain Rennie Hospice at Home
raised an amazing £113.11, so once again,
most grateful thanks on behalf of IRHH for all those donations.
The Village Society hosted a Quiz Night to over 70 guests on 8 November 2014. There was a very
tight finish, but the Argumentals just managed to pip the Wing and a Prayer at the last question.
Many thanks to Simon Fraser, our star quizmaster.
Also, a huge thank you to the members of the committee and friends/spouses for organising the quiz and providing an excellent supper.
