Hi Tim

Is this 'pending membership' to join this website group or are you wishing to join the Ide Hill Society?

Best wishes

I appreciated the reply that I had to my message below, advising me that my membership was "pending" - that was five weeks ago and a couple of emails since have gone without reply so I guess this won't be going any further.

I wish you all the best going forward.

Kind Regards

Tim.S.

Hi,
My family on my mothers side lived in Ide Hill for many years and two of my great uncles are commemorated in the Church - WW1, the sole surviving brother of the three was Arthur Potter who lived to be 83. I played for Ide Hill FC,( but not very well), in the 70's and was also a member of the Idlers at that time and performed in two or three plays at the village hall.

I understand the Idlers are no more ? I do have some photos of them and programmes, which I'd be happy to share if of interest.

I have been sent an email enquiring about the origin of a silver tea/coffee pot that has been inscribed "presented by the tenants of the Montreal Estate, Sevenoaks to Mr W H Pettigrew on his relinquishing the agency June 1903" I have photographs of the item, which is currently in Bermuda. The owner was wondering if we could shed any light on it's history, and so I thought I would ask your society if you could help.
I look forward to hearing from you

Hello, I am wondering if you have any information about John William Potter, the eldest of the Potter family. There were 4 sons who went off to the first World War and only 2 came back. Its only recently that I managed to find out that he went to Mesopotamia. I am descended from Florence, one of the older girls. She did not speak of him and my mother thought he might have gone to Liverpool. I do however have photos of the four brothers (3 in uniform) plus one other anon (possibly a boyfriend of the youngest daughter, my great aunt). This enquiry is rather a long shot. Thankyou Rosemary Southon
