Bridgeway Stores Opening Hours

The opening  hours are now:

Mon-Sat: 8am to 6pm
Sun: 8am to 4pm

Please note that the shop will close when the delivery truck arrives to allow for unloading, restocking shelves and fulfilling village delivery orders. Unfortunately, Londis are currently unable to specify what time this will be (it’s usually very early in the morning)

Dogs on the rec

Please remember that dogs are not permitted on the recreation ground.

The only exception is going directly along the public footpath from the pavilion to the A2 – where they MUST be kept on a lead. This is especially important at the moment as there are sheep with lambs in the field by the surgery.

Cancelled: Art in Bridge Photographic Exhibition

In view of developing circumstances it has been decided to cancel this exhibition. The Committee is sorry if this causes inconvenience or disappointment. We look forward to the Art in Bridge Art exhibition – Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October 2020 in expectation of more settled times. Please see the website for further details.

Nailbourne Bridge

Overpumping of Sewage

The sewers along the Nailbourne have become overwhelmed with the amount of water. Southern Water has begun pumping the sewers to relieve the burden.

At present this involves either pumping sewerage from one sewer to another or pumping the sewerage into tankers to be transported away. For the time being there are no plans to pump sewerage directly into the Nailbourne.

The River Management Group, Southern Water and the Environment Agency are monitoring the situation very closely and will provide updates should anything change.

Brewery Lane Ford Closed

The Nailbourne is now running along its full length. As a result of our section connecting with the Barham section, the levels have risen considerably and the KCC duty officer has closed the road at the Brewery Lane Ford.

The heavy flood gates were put in place on Thursday morning (13th Feb 2020).
