We are pleased to report that the Nailbourne Horticultural Society is very much alive and has even got one or two things in the pipeline for you…
The footpaths across the fields are now very, very muddy.
Please wear appropriate footwear and stick to paths.
Do not try to avoid the mud by walking on crop fields. Many such fields look like grass, but they are not.
The river is very close to flooding the footpath by the kissing gate in the water meadows. Only a small tree root is holding it back.
Take extra care when walking, please.
Kent County Council are holding a consultation on their budget for 2021. They are asking residents to give them feedback on which services should be protected from budget cuts and whether there is support for an increase in council tax to help balance the budget.
A 2% increase would raise a further £14.4million to be spent on adult social care services and increase the KCC element for a band C property by a further £24 (or 46 pence per week).
The consultation runs from 14 October to 24 November 2020 and the document and questionnaire can be found here: www.kent.gov.uk/budget
Michael Stewart has kindly reviewed the Parish Council accounts for 2019/20 and has produced a report.
In his report, he asks if residents wish him to continue to produce it, so please let him know.

Kent’s mobile library service will restart in Bridge from 17th September 2020.
The service will look and feel a little different. It will be delivered on a ‘Select & Collect’ basis, similar to the service currently operating in the open library buildings, with no public entry to the mobile vehicle. Customers will be able to return books and receive books they have pre-selected, alongside being able to talk to the mobile driver. Mobile library routes have been amended to accommodate COVID19 specific staff welfare issues and will run on a 4-weekly cycle.
Our service will be on Thursdays, 15:15-16:00 on rota “Monthly Blue 2”
- Thursday 17th September
- Thursday 15th October
- Thursday 12th November
