    I'm new here but I have just enjoyed looking \t the Ayelsford reports. Really good. I had mates who worked in the paper mills at Ayelsford whan Reeds and Bowaters were in ascendency, but they would neve rlet me see inside ant whare and had to retreat to Wiggins Teape at Dartford, a much smaller more specialised operation.
    Good work, appreciated.
