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.”
