PARENTS can get vital advice and help at a workshop due to be held in advance of their children starting school.

Gravesham Local Children's Services Partnership Early Years Transition Group is holding the Starting School event at Woodville Halls, Gravesend, from 3pm to 8pm on October 21.

It is aimed to reduce the numbers of children who start school late because their parents are unaware of the applications process and time frame.

Schools, nurseries and childminders will be represented, with Mayor Bronwen McGarrity expected to attend. Call 01474 364592 for more details.

Hidden past

SECRETS of Shorne Village's past are due to be revealed during an historical walk.

The event is to be led by Christoph Bull, Gravesham Libraries district manager, at 2.30pm on Sunday. It will include an amusing mixture of local history and folklore.

To take part, meet at the bottom of Forge Lane, the junction with A226 (Gravesend Road).
