Myself and a long time resident of Wormshill recently met Michele Snoding, KCC’s Footpaths officer regarding footpaths around the village. It was a useful meeting and she is now in contact with those where footpaths run over their land with the intention of keeping stiles and gates in good repair.

She mentioned that there is a website where problems can be reported. It is as follows:

Worth bearing in mind if you don’t otherwise know who to speak to. There are some great paths locally to get a bit of exercise and see the countryside.

Kent Rural police update – 13th September

50:50 Village Hall prize competition!

The Village Hall Committee has a number of ambitious objectives to undertake some urgent repairs to the Village Hall  as well as making the hall a more desirable location through making a number of improvements to the hall and its environs. This of course requires funding.

As part of this, Denise Gee is kindly running a 50:50 competition where individuals can assist with fundraising with a minimum £10 contribution and a chance to raise some meaningful cash prizes. Some villagers have kindly underwritten the competition guaranteeing that there will be no less than 100 shares so you could win a first prize of £75, 2nd of £37.50 and 3rd £12.50, but these will double if more contributors enter, so get those cheque books out and start writing!

Attached are the prize amounts proposed, the rules and most importantly the application form!

Agenda for 125th Annual Village meeting – 17th April 2018

Come along to the 125th Annual Village Meeting, 7pm in the Village Hall on Tuesday 17th April.

Its your chance to comment on the state of the village and hear from our Kent Councillor Shellina Prendergast and hopefully also our Maidstone Borough Councillor, Patrik Garten. Kent Police are unfortunately unable to attend in person but may provide a report and welcome any comments raised at the meeting.

This is a draft agenda, let me know if there is anything else you wish to discuss.

Village clean-up

Many thanks to all her helped litter pick on the 12th. We did all the village and quite a bit outside it. It is amazing how much and what sort of rubbish there was to be found – energy drinks in particular plus beer cans – some people literally do drink and drive but are then happy to litter the countryside rather than their car or van.

Below is a picture of everyone enjoying a post-pick bacon bap, oat cake and cup of tea on the village website.

If you are interested in helping out next time let me know – this time word of mouth rapidly meant we easily had enough without any more advertising, plus a good haul of youngsters involved, which helps convey a sense of civic responsibility for our village. Well done to everyone!






A word of thanks to Maidstone Borough Council – they had previously provided hi-vis jackets, gloves, bags and litter picking sticks so that we can do this as and when – normally before everything gets too abundant (in spring)  or starts to drop (in the autumn).

Pillar box back!

After Royal Mail accepted that the box was theirs and not a private one, they reinstalled it on Friday 3rd March. It now needs to be commissioned and I imagine they will have a grand re-opening…

Possibly not though…
