General Chat / Re: Sibton Park School
« Last post by Rachbenn on October 26, 2017, 12:07:23 PM »
I have such wonderful memories of Sibton Park School. I came over from Australia for my gap year to be live there. I was a boarding house mistress and the Games teacher there in 1994 and the girls called me Miss Rachel. I loved my time there so much and loved the girls dearly, was devastated to leave them actually. Would love to hear from anyone who was there at that time. I remember Camilla, Laura, Mia, Lady Hervey, Alex, Isabella Dupree Nelson, Faiza, Catriona Blackwell, and so many more.
I am now living in Hawkes Bay New Zealand with my husband and three primary school aged children and work as a winemaker here. Iíve only ever come across 1 Sibton girl called Molly who was there when it finally closed. What an amazingly beautiful school it was.
My address is rachbenn@hotmail.com and I am now Rachel Croft.
General Chat / dog fowling
« Last post by christina w on November 02, 2016, 09:16:43 PM »
Does any one else have problems with dog fowling. I live in skeete road, my drive is private but because there is a footpath crossing the bottom of my drive/track people walk their dogs up or down it and think nothing of leaving dog mess in the drive. When I go come back with my horse after exercise I have to scrub out his hooves. I do not understand the mentality of these people firstly to use some ones private land and then to leave their filth behind. I will be putting private signs up shortly but as I have spoken to some of these people already and they have still continued to use my drive I don't hold up much hope with the signs. Does any body have any other ideas. I am seriously thinking about taking photos and naming and posting them publicly but do not know if that is legal.

Hi Jon

I am Ladybear's sister and remember living at Linden Hall Lyminge very well in the late 1950s/60s. We came from the Hoskins family who came from Ringwood and Portsmouth areas. Our father did not have a relative called Philip Hoskins in the Hythe area to my knowledge.

I am interested to see that Linden Hall has been up for sale for some months and how interesting to see all the alterations and see the rooms that were so familiar to us as a family living there. I remember the Aga in the kitchen where we spent most of our time because the house had no central heating back then and enormous spiders invaded the house regularly.

I need to correct my sister's recollection of the ownership of the property. It was owned by a lady called Mrs Warren who had a son who would play the grand piano which was in the big lounge which had its wall right on the main road. Mrs Warren owned several properties in the Folkestone area and she put Linden Hall on the market while we were living there. The fact it was right on the corner by the main road did put off buyers as I heard them talking about it.

Yes the house does have apparitions but I won't go into that. It has a fascinating history. Yes my father did find human remains by the stream which ran through the grounds after a tree had been dislodged by the stream after a storm.

I was interested to see that Lyminge appears to have a new primary school. I have lots of memories of the old one which was up near the church.

I hope my recollections are of interest.

For John Gammon

Sorry but I know of no Philip Hoskins in my family line. My fathers side of family originated from Portsmouth, Hampshire.

This is a question for Ladybear if she picks it up.

I'm trying to track down the descendants of a Philip Hoskins, who was a builder in Hythe in the 1920's. Was he, by chance, a part of your family?

General Chat / FOUND: Female black and white cat 3-5 years old
« Last post by gardencoaster on January 11, 2016, 12:29:07 PM »
We are seeking to identify the owner of a friendly black and white female cat - black body, white socks on rear legs, white front paws, white irregular moustache, stunning white whiskers - that was found wandering at Beachborough around Remembrance Sunday. A visit to the vet confirms that she is not microchipped and is between three and five years of age. She is domesticated, friendly and in good health. Local enquiries have drawn a blank and it is possible that the cat has strayed from some distance away. Please message me if you recognise the description as it must be relocated ASAP and will be rehomed if unclaimed.  (Unable to attach photo due to constraints of this forum.)

There are lots of good dog walks around Lyminge; public footpaths, Lyminge forest - a short drive away, Postling Downs a good open hill to run dogs - cattle/sheep permitting.

You can, if you're so inclined walk from Lyminge to Canterbury off-road as my wife has done with the dogs.
