'Dedicated to the advancement of apiculture (bee-keeping) and the promotion, fostering and encouraging of education therein ... Most of its work is done through local branches, which aim to educate bee-keepers about bee-keeping and to inform, and hopefully enthuse, the public about the magic and mystery of honey bees. There are twelve branches of the Kent Bee-Keepers’ Association.'

'At Kent Gardens Trust, we believe that gardens, parks and other designed green spaces are a vital part of our heritage. Over the centuries, they have often been a source of pride and pleasure to people seeking peace and tranquillity in a busy world ... The Trust organises a series of events throughout the year, including talks and visits to interesting and significant gardens. These occasions are designed to be both enjoyable and informative. They provide a good opportunity for members to meet new people and renew old acquaintances, usually over lunch or tea. But they also provide an opportunity to increase our awareness and understanding of Kent's garden heritage. Many of the gardens we visit are not normally open to the general public.'

'A group of people who are interested in all aspects of geology, but especially in the geology of Kent. The membership includes a wide variety of people from beginners to experts, young and old, brought together by a fascination for the beauty of what lies beneath their feet. Interests are also very wide and include palaeontologists and fossil collectors, mineralogists and mineral collectors, stratigraphers and others. Many of the members, however, do not specialize but have a wide general interest in geology. This mix of people and subjects makes for a very friendly group.'

'We meet in Swanley Kent on the second Tuesday of every month from October to March, we have guest speakers and forum nights and promote all aspects of fly tying and fishing.'
