In September 2018 a third UK Carden Gathering was held, this time in Lewes, Sussex, England on the anniversary of the ones held in Cheshire in 1998 and in Brighton in 2008. A full report is available from https://www.lulu.com/spotlight/carden. Numerous other Carden Gatherings have been held and one is planned to take place in Knoxville, TN, in 2023.
Americans should note that in 2012 I edited and produced a book CARDENS IN AMERICA, COMPILED BY CHUCK CARDEN, obtainable from https://www.lulu.com/spotlight/carden. I personally believe this 570-page book should be in the possession of every American interested in the Carden family. For more information see my blog mentioned under 'Links' below.
My address from 2015 is Arthur Carden, 41 Leggyfield Close, Redford Avenue, Horsham, West Sussex RH12 2FX, England. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
