Mid-Kent AGS Local Group

THIS THE HOME PAGE OF THE MID-KENT AGS LOCAL GROUP
The Group was started by Leon Miles and Jim Hamblett and 12 keen members,under the banner of AGS Medway Group. The first meeting was held at Bluebell Hill Village Hall, Chatham in September 1977 and our first speaker was Michael Upward competing with the other half of the hall were the locals were playing bingo. After starting a Local Show we were encouraged by the then Director of Shows Mary Randell to start a National AGS Show this first show took place in 1993 at Maidstone, the next year we held the show at Rainham and we are still there today.In 2007 we took over the AGS Sussex Show and renamed it Autumn South Show.

In 2008 we left Bluebell Hill because yellow lines were painted on the roads, so parking was very difficult.

So we moved to Bearsted and changed our name to AGS Mid Kent Group. The Madginford Hall is well apointed with a large car park.

We look forward to seeing past and new members to our meetings were you will receive a warm welcome.
