Ongoing Parish Council Work


Ongoing PC Works
June 2018

Dear Residents,

In order to provide up to date information on the various projects the Parish Council is working on, I shall be sending round this brief report monthly, in the two weeks between PC meetings. Further updates can be obtained via the Parish Council Minutes available on the website.

Whilst not all projects will have new information each time (depending on whether progress has been made) I hope this will serve to give you a better idea of how tasks are progressing.

Kind regards,

Chantal Brooks

War Memorials
Both Brenchley and Matfield War Memorials have been cleaned. Re-engraving of worn lettering and additional names will be added to the Brenchley Memorial in the summer.

Porter's Wood
Kent High Weald Partnership will be undertaking some work in July including clearing and improvements to the natural seating area.

Matfield Fête
The Parish Council will have a stand at the Fête on 7th July, please come along to talk to Councillors on matters that are important to you.

Brenchley Signpost
Quotes are being obtained to repair the village signpost on the War Memorial, the wooden post being worn at the base.

Postboxes in Matfield
The postbox at Webb's Orchard is now open. Royal Mail are still considering other replacement boxes.

Only 4 plots are now available. An Allotment tenants’ meeting has been held and ideas for improvements are being discussed with the Parish Council.

Two broken panes of glass have been replaced in the Bus Shelter opposite the Ebenezer Chapel on Maidstone Road.

Parish Council Name Change
