Trevor Fentiman – 365 Faversham 2021

Trevor Fentiman, ex heating engineer, 67 and now happily retired living in Faversham where I have lived most of my life

What’s your story with Faversham?

I was born in Faversham in the old Kingsfield nursing home, i have lived and worked in Faversham most of my life so it means a lot to me.

What is important to you in the town?

Its important that the town is well documented as we are a fast changing town, it would be a good idea to get some auido memories as well as visual as we will soon be loosing generations that remember things like Charlie the old dray horse etc

Why did you decide to take part in the project?

Just thought it would be good to be part of what is going to be a running history of the town.

Which camera do you use?

I have several, a small panasonic tz200 which goes every where with me to capture those once in an opertunity images and a Fuji xt4 for those more planned images.

What do you like to photograph in the town?

I have spent a while taking images of what i call my lockdown images but now back to those every day type images from diffrent views.

Have you learnt anything about the town that you didn’t know before taking part in the project?

Found a few old foot paths enabling me to take a different view of the town

Have you had a special experience whilst photographing for the project?

Managed to form new frienships with like minded people who just want to know more about what i am doing and about Faversham

Have you got any thought / tips /pieces of advice you could share with somebody wanting to get involved?

Just do it as all images are important.
Its a great idea as things and stories get lost and once they are gone they dont get remembered the way they were, if at all.


Tuesday 23 February 2021 – Tree pollarding – Stonebridge Way Trimming up the tree before the birds start nesting. Walking into town, seeing men pollarding a tree and just thinking I was glad it was not me hanging on a rope.
