Following the announcement by the government on 4 January 2021, we must close the tennis courts and outdoor gym in Lower Green Road with immediate effect. For further guidance on the rules please visit the government website.
The ongoing Covid-19 restrictions means that we are unable to hold any events or exhibitions at the moment, but we still want to hear what you have to say about Pembury as a place to live.
Please complete our online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PemburyNP. It won’t take very long but will provide our volunteers in the different Neighbourhood Plan Working Groups with lots of helpful information.
It’s also an opportunity to share your details with us so that we can keep you updated on how the Neighbourhood Plan is going or follow up with you if you’d like to get a bit more involved.
We are delighted to announce that Pembury Bowls Club and Pembury Football Club have been successful in their applications for Community Funding from Pembury Parish Council! Each club has been awarded £500 for their projects which will help improve their facilities.
Pembury Bowls Club are located in their pavilion in Lower Green Recreation Ground. They have nearly 50 members and offer the opportunity to play bowls and meet socially. They will use the grant money for their project to renew equipment to maintain their bowling green along with over £600 raised themselves. Treasurer, Brian Aylard thanked the Parish Council for their generous support which would help them finish the project. For more details about the club please visit their website pemburybowlsclub.com.
Pembury Football Club are based at Woodside Playing Fields and play each weekend during the football season. They currently have around 80 members. Their project will provide benches and a portable dugout. Chairman, Andy Rice-Tucker said “Pembury Football Club is both delighted and grateful to receive a Community Grant from Pembury Parish Council to support its efforts to improve the aesthetic of their pitch at Woodside. Also, the club is to receive partial funding from the estate of a former player and long-standing villager, Peter Hillier. The benches will serve as a permanent memorial, enable spectators to sit whilst watching and footpath walkers to suitably rest at other times should they wish. The club are hopeful that the work will be completed during lockdown and welcome visitors to the ground hopefully shortly.”
Remembrance Day – Sunday 8 November 2020
Sadly this year there is no public Remembrance event taking place due to the current restrictions. We have arranged a service for a small number of invited guests to represent the community of Pembury and lay wreaths at the War Memorial from 10:50am. The short service will be live-streamed on our Facebook page.
We’re encouraging people to commemorate Remembrance at home and politely request that you do NOT attend the War Memorial in Pembury on Remembrance Sunday during the service.
