9th January, 2018: Spring will be bustin’ out all over in Prospect Road in 2018!

As part of its continuing programme of bulb-planting in and around Hythe, Hythe in Bloom has organised another planting session, this time in Prospect Road. Over the course of three chilly but beautifully sunny mornings in November and early December, five volunteers planted a total of 1500 mixed daffodil bulbs at the entrance to Theatre Street. Come the spring, they will provide a glorious splash of colour to that area of the town.

The photograph shows volunteers (l to r) Veronica Chapman, Lynn Clark and Nigel & Sally Chesters in Prospect Road having finished work!

If you would like to join the Hythe in Bloom team of volunteers and make a real difference to our historic town, please call Sally Chesters on 01303 266118



8th January, 2018: Eaton Lands Community Orchard:

October, 2016 Hythe Festival 2018 - Can You Help?


Following the huge success of the 2016 Hythe Festival plans are now underway for 2018 but the Festival Committee needs your help. Click Here for a chart of the roles that the Festival committee is looking to fill (the roles in GREEN are already filled). If you would like to help please contact John Keesing at .


With regard to the planning for 2018, the Festival committee has an urgent need for people to come forward to take on roles, as either main or sub-committee members. Without this, the viability of the festival is at risk. Several of the committee members from 2016 have had to stand down, and the committee for the last festival was already very small. The Festival committee thanks those who have already pledged their support in a committee role.
