Flowers were laid on St Edith’s Well in Kemsing during the morning and afternoon on Sunday.
St Edith’s Day started with a procession from the parish church after the main morning service. The singing could be heard in the old Post Office (now Kemsing Italian Deli and Coffee Shop).
In the afternoon a Roman Catholic group mainly from Sevenoaks came for the annual devotions at the Well before processing to the church for a beautifully sung Vespers.
Anglican in the morning and Roman Catholic in the afternoon seems a little old fashioned but a warm welcome at the church for the Sevenoaks pilgrims (many had walked) by a churchwarden and an Anglican presence brought an ecumenical dimension.
Tea with lots of cake followed in The Bell.
** St Edith of Kemsing was born in the village but she is also known as St Edith of Wilton where she was Abbess.
