Faversham Life is celebrating its second birthday - the plethora of ideas for articles is neverending.

We are often asked if we are scrambling around for subjects.

Far from it – at each editorial meeting the four of us arrive with a long list of possible ideas.

To celebrate our second birthday, here is a small selection of our 110 articles to date, on a wide range of subjects, from the artist Paul Fowler who vividly captures the atmosphere of the estuarine landscape around Faversham, to the delectable strawberries grown at Newlands Farm, a couple of miles from Faversham, to Anna’s Country Flowers, a grower of seasonal British flowers. (Just click on the images or the links below to read the articles.)

All our other articles can be accessed by category via the menu at the top of the page: please choose from People, Culture, Architecture, Shopping, Gardens and Food.

Thank you to our website designer, Neil Brown of Beamtwenty3 and a big thank you to our 1,000 plus subscribers, followers and readers.

Here is to another interesting year of weekly articles about all things Faversham.
