    We had a wonderful week at Kipps and met some of the most wonderful guests, we sang and partied together, we had great dinners and enjoyed Kipps events. The sun was out so our group enjoyed their Pizza dinner in the beautiful garden. The cosy Lounge was the place for fun in the evening. We were very sad to say Goodbye but we know they will all be back :)---

    Finally spring has sprung! No excuse for not going out and about, so Angie and Carmen have decided to put on their backpacks and explore the beautiful outdoors. You must include the beautiful walk in Blean Woods, a nice trail from Canterbury to the seaside called Crab and Winkle Way or a river boat tour around the City.---
