'Come along to your local, friendly village gardening club. Visitors and new members are always welcome. We have a wide variety of speakers on plants, wildlife, vegetables and we visit inspiring gardens.'

'Aims to help us all to understand and enjoy aspects of our village and parish history and that of the surrounding areas – from the houses and architecture to the people, their livelihoods and the landscape ... We usually organise 9 talks and 2 visits each year. Places on our visits are usually limited in number and only available to members.'

'Aim is to encourage photography and to help our members to make better pictures. We are photographers of all abilities, from relative beginners to very experienced, from around Sevenoaks. We hope you will think about joining us. We're not concerned about what camera you use and we've seen great pictures taken on compacts and mobile phones in our events. Whether beginner or experienced, whatever medium you use to make your photographs, you will be welcome.'

'Established in 2002 with the aim of bringing the brightest and best of current authors to the area ... It has always included a broad range of speakers: novelists, biographers, activists, poets, historians, politicians, political commentators and journalists.' Normally held Early October.

'By raising public awareness, monitoring developments and working with local authorities and other bodies we help to safeguard the town’s character and its physical and natural heritage. We promote responsible and responsive planning and appropriate building development for the improvement of Sevenoaks and the benefit of its community.'
